Seven Davis Jr. uses his new single “Fighters” to touch on the recent social unrest that has hit cities like Baltimore, Ferguson, and elsewhere in America. The track will appear on the upcoming Universes LP scheduled for release on July 24.
Davis describes “Fighters”:
“Fighters'” was inspired by seeing the different struggles and political issues of other countries during my travels. Especially watching the current violence in America escalate, from outside of America. How some people fight for very valid reasons and others may be fighting to preserve old practices that are no longer appropriate in today’s world.
The lyrics ‘They’re killing themselves’ refers to officers in America who have been killing and targeting innocent African-Americans. That those officers are killing themselves each time they kill an innocent African American. Not just in America but anywhere people are being murdered.
