Kanye West teased new music from his upcoming album God’s Country and on Tuesday he did not disappoint. Dropping the video for “Wash Us In The Blood” that features Travis Scott and a video cameo of North West, the video instantly went viral on YouTube and is number one on the top trends. The song is a cry for the Holy Spirit to come help the black community that is in need of healing. Kanye touched on many current events with the song including police brutality, incarceration, black on black violence, protests, turning to a life of crime, and ultimately turning one’s life over to the Holy Spirit. Kanye also touched on themes involving his own spiritual conversion and the conflict he’s faced in the recording industry since doing so.
The video format features a montage of various scenes compiled by Arthur Jafa who directed the video. Dr. Dre mixed “Wash Us In The Blood.”
