'Produced By' pairs producers with a collection of
some of today's top artists across various genres to
create exclusive, new recordings for Amazon Music
listeners. Each Friday during the month of February
Younge released an Amazon Original song as part of
the series, only available to stream and purchase on
Amazon Music. Featuring Black Thought, Estelle,
Gallant, Georgia Anne Muldrow and Terrace Martin.
From Adrian's perspective, each of these songs
collectively celebrate the spectrum of black music,
and are intentionally being released during Black
History Month. Younge explains:
The obsession with race is disturbing to those that
wish to divert attention away from the unyielding
attributes that have plagued black America. However,
we all must realize how such disenfranchisement has
negatively affected us all. We are all equal and we are
all human; we all have something to say and
something to contribute; essentially, we all deserve to
be heard, recognized and respected. That being said,
our celebration of Black History Month brings us
closer to understanding the struggles and
contributions African Americans have made in
making America what it is.
There was a time in America when Blacks weren't
free to pursue their creative endeavors. Such cultural
tension led to Blacks creating the first American
musical art form: Jazz. This music, the antithesis of
western idealism, is what continues to inspire black
music today. My work embraces this perspective, but
furthermore, it serves as a reminder of how music
can lay the groundwork for self-expression and
cultural awareness. Embrace Black History Month
and take the time to realize how black music has
shaped the cultural narrative of America.
