Of the song, Koffee says: “My people, as we witness the constant injustice towards our brothers and sisters, we must stand together. I may be young, but I can fully feel the weight of the decades of oppression and abuse towards not only Black Americans, but Black people all over the world. We cannot let all the lives lost be in vain. We must fight for freedom and fight against injustice. We are all in this together. None of us are free until all of us are free.”
Koffee stormed her way into 2019 with the release of her debut Rapture praised for its lyrical ingenuity and positive messaging which went on to achieve over half a billion combined audio/visual streams.
