A HIP HOP song has been created by two musicians from Bromsgrove and one from Alvechurch to call for unity and to raise funds for the George Floyd Memorial Fund.

I Can’t Breathe by One Jenda, Kie Baker and AJ Powell backs the Black Lives Matter campaign and has been released on the music streaming and download channels.

Luke W, who is 23 and from Bromsgrove, goes by the name of One Jenda, creates house music and sells hip hop beats.

He said: “We created the song as a way of spreading a vital message with the problems we are dealing with currently in society.

“I have been producing music and beats for six years and I feel I am finally starting to see it shine through.”

Kie Baker, who is also 23 and from Bromsgrove, said: “We have never created a song before but thought spreading our message through music was the best way to reach people from all walks of life.

“We hope people enjoy the song and that the message portrayed can help adjust mindsets.”

AJ, who is 24 and grew up in Alvechurch, said: “I was delighted when asked to jump on this track because of the seriousness of the times – it’s great trying to educate people on both perspectives.

“We have tried to put views across from both the white British perspective and the mixed Jamaican British side.”

“We need to spread the word in the community and show togetherness is the key.”

There is a parental advisory for explicit lyrics on the full version of I Can’t Breathe – One Jenda (featuring Kie B and AJ Powell) which can be found on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and YouTube.
