Teyana Taylor has shared a visual for The Album cut, “Still.”

The powerful music video, directed by Spike Tey, is an ode to the Black Lives Matter movement and the foundation of where it stands. It begins with the names of all the Black folks who have been victims of racism in the country, going all the way back to Emmett Till and Rodney King up to more recent victims like Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery. Taylor can then be seen reenacting the haunting images of figures such as Malcolm X and Mamie Till Bradley, along with pictures of the victims including Breonna Taylor in her uniform, Trayvon Martin in his hoodie, Elijah McClain playing his violin and George Floyd in the footage of his death.

“We are STILL emotional. We STILL keep fighting for love, justice. Yet we STILL keep losing our beautiful black lives. Where’s our healing?” Taylor wrote in an Instagram post sharing her music video. “I shot this video a few months ago & its crazy how to this day our cry for love is STILL so relevant today and plans to be for a very long time smh! WE DEMAND CHANGE!!!”
