Marieme will release a string of singles this summer: Songs for the Revolution. Marieme was so moved by recent events she decided to get to work with new music with the hopes of starting to heal herself and the world around her.
She kicks the series off with a video only release of her track “Lovechild” that recently premiered on Billboard Pride. Of the track Marieme said, “The song is about remembering who you are, you’re a lovechild.”
The video was directed by Fredgy Noël and features the names and faces of Transgender women of color murdered in this country this year.
“Trans lives matter, we know nothing about their struggle and whether you agree with their life or not, it is your duty to treat every human being as such, a HUMAN! Unfortunately the rate in which Black Trans women are being killed is alarming. There are many constructs to deconstruct, that’s the only way to end oppression for all,” Marieme said.
