In the video for her new single “Still,” Teyana Taylor draws from iconic imagery of Black activism and from racial injustices past and present.
It’s also clear in a couple of shots that she was very pregnant with her second child at the time of filming. She wrote that the whole process of making and editing the video was very emotional, adding on Instagram:
We are STILL emotional. We STILL keep fighting for love, justice. Yet we STILL keep losing our beautiful black lives. Where’s our healing?” she wrote. “I shot this video a few months ago & it’s 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!!!
You can find “Still” on Teyana Taylor’s album, titled The Album.
