Only days after the deaths of Black men Terence Crutcher and Keith Lamont Scott at the hands of law enforcement, actor and singer Trevor Jackson released his latest single “Colours On The Ground”, contributing to the heightened discussion of the use of deadly force on victims of color.
Produced by Pay Attention and Killa, and co-written with Jackson’s brother Iyn Jackson, the track melodically details the brutal realities of the aftermath of the tragic killings we’ve been witness to as of late.
“I wrote this song after the Alton Sterling and Philando Castile shooting and with the recent unfortunate tragedies involving Terence Crutcher, Keith Lamont Scott & Terrence Sterling, I felt compelled to share the song in hopes that it sheds light on these dark times,” says Jackson. “Using the pain and frustrations that I know a lot of us deal with fueled me to create something that I pray helps others cope with the current state of our country. We can no longer turn a blind eye…change is necessary.”
