Keedron Bryant, the young 12-year-old who sang about inequality in America, will release the single with Warner Records.
The song went viral in late May after a police officer wrongfully killed George Floyd. The young singer sang about being a young Black man trying to be strong in America, where the Black community is often targeted. He sings at the top of his lungs that he just wants to live.
Warner Records announced on June 18 that they would be signing the young star along with releasing “I Just Wanna Live,” on June 19, known as Juneteenth. The label will also donate all proceeds from the song to NAACP and $1 for every stream on Amazon Music until they reach $50k.
Bryant recently dropped the visual for “I Just Wanna Live,” that features photos of protests from the Black community, as well as the lyrics to go along with the song. The black and white video also expresses the challenges the Black community has faced with police, marching for integrated schools, and simply, freedom.
