In a time where racial injustices have ravaged the world due to countless killings of Black people at the hands of police and others, a rising artist and songwriter is shedding light on those issues and the dire climate we live in today.
Crossing over to R&B music, there’s no doubt that Ryte Eye Ty’s hit single “Freedom” is an electrifying ballad with smooth harmonies and vocals that speak volumes about racial tension in America and is a cry for hope and change.
“God is the driving force behind my record and I hope the song will continue to reach the masses and touch as many people worldwide as possible,” Ty said. “Right now, we need real change in our country and equality that so many civil rights leaders have fought for, as we continue to see too many deaths of Black men and women.”
The song, which has been featured on Billboard Sound and continues to gain radio play, seems like a Black Lives Matter anthem and will make listeners put it on replay because of the meaningful lyrics.
Ty began his career in gospel music after meeting a renowned music executive and wrote his first song at the early age of 13. Some of his accomplishments include a nomination for a gospel award, placement on the 57th annual Grammy Ballot for two of his songs and interviews on top radio shows nationwide.
He is the cofounder and CEO of One Way Up Entertainment, an independent record label based in Florida, which the label’s parent company is Pretty High Publishing.
“Freedom” is available on various music streaming platforms such as Spotify, Apple music and more. Check out the music video above.
