The Undefeated Music Companion Piece “I Can’t Breathe/Music for the Movement” Set For Release October 16

BURBANK, Calif., Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The “I Can’t Breathe/Music for the Movement” EP is set for release today on Hollywood Records. In music form, the EP release highlights the social injustice protests taking place in America through the mediums of music and art. The project, a collaboration between The Undefeated and Hollywood Records, reimagines historically significant songs, as well as an original song, by and for Black America with contemporary artists and producers.

Each song has exclusive artwork created by Black artists. The art gives deeper meaning to each song. In a year of racial disparity, as well as a global pandemic and economic downturn, the music reminds and evokes the importance of voting.

The track listing for “I Can’t Breathe/Music for the Movement” is as follows:

  • Pray Momma Don’t Cry, performed by Grammy-nominated Rapsody, featuring Bilal and produced by 9th Wonder.  Original artwork by NUWARHOL.
  • People Get Ready, performed by Grammy-nominated Terrace Martin & Alex Isley, featuring Grammy and Emmy Award-winner Robert Glasper and produced by Terrace Martin and Robert Glasper.  Original artwork by Al-Baseer.
  • Strange Fruit, performed by Jensen McRae and produced by Rahki.  Original artwork by Blue the Great.
  • Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology), performed by 13-year-old sensation Keedron Bryant and produced by Dem Joints.  Original artwork by Laurence “Sketch” Cheatham.

The “I Can’t Breathe/Music for the Movement” EP is the second music by The Undefeated published and licensed by Hollywood Records after the July 2018 release of Undefeated, a single by R&B artist Rayana Jay highlighting the resilience of Black female athletes in defying stereotypes. The EP is one in a series of releases from the ongoing music collaborations between Hollywood Records and The Undefeated, giving heed to cultural importance of “The Undefeated” brand as a tastemaker in Black culture.
