Jazmine Sullivan has released a new song, ‘Stand Up’, which is taken from Chinonye Chukwu’s new film Till. Listen to the track, which was written entirely by Sullivan and produced by D’Mile, below.
“We will never forget Emmett Till and his story,” Sullivan said in a statement. “I’m honored to be able to contribute to such a powerful film about such a historic and tragic moment in American history. I believe that part of my purpose is to give space for stories that are often ignored and silenced; the Black experience in particular.”
Chinonye Chukwu added: “It was a genuine dream come true to have Jazmine Sullivan pen and perform ‘Stand Up’ as the end credit song of Till. A passionate artist and activist, Jazmine delivers an anthem for justice and hope; one that ignites a fire to rise up for all people whose lives have been senselessly cut short because of America’s deep rooted and white supremacy.”
Jazmine Sullivan’s most recent album was 2021’s Heaux Tales.
