World Video Premiere: Jewelle McKenzie – Rise Up (I Can’t Breathe)

On the heels of the incredible success of her new dance single, October 2nd will see the release of Jewelle McKenzie’s evocative video for Rise Up (I Can’t Breathe). Co-written by Jewelle, the song is a call for attention to racism and police brutality in Canada and illustrate the personal anger and sadness felt by this Montreal singer. The concept was inspired by the tragic killings of BIPOC at the hands of law enforcement, the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement prompted by the murder of George Floyd, and the ensuing and ongoing protests. The video’s images of Montreal protests, police officers and the names of Canadian victims are set against Jewelle’s powerful vocals imploring, “Why?”
