"The system is broken," Prince wrote in a statement that appears at the end of the video. "It's going to take the young people to fix it this time. We need new ideas, new life...."
When Prince posted the studio version of the song to SoundCloud, he included a statement explaining that he'd written the song while watching the riots alone in his Paisley Park Studio. As he worked on the song in the days that followed, he requested Kane fly in to record her part. "Please know that all involved in this project never take for granted the privileges we have in this country," the statement read. "Let's all continue to fight the good fight and confront inhumanity on every level until the day it is no longer."
