I wrote this song when I was 18 years old, I believe. My entire life I’ve been surrounded by strong, beautiful Black women who have helped me become the man that I am today.

 

Often times in the media, we see Black women torn down and attacked. It’s bad enough to see white people do it, but when Black men, especially, talk and degrade women it runs me the wrong way. We came from Black women, so it’s our job to protect them and to not fetishize other races at the expense of our women.

 

I titled it "Easter Sunday" because growing up, going to church I would go and see women of all ages just dressed up and overwhelmed with love. At the end of the day, I need a woman that can relate to me on a deep level. An emotional level. A mental and spiritual level. Only a Black woman can tell me why my brothers bleed. She understands what it’s like to be Black in America. I believe in the Black family, and it’s importance to the community. I hope whenever Black women feel like the world is against them, this song can remind you all that you’ll always be loved.
