Prince's New Song Veers Into Civil Rights Issues

Prince is hoping to bring some musical healing to the protest-ravaged city of Baltimore.

On Saturday, the "1999" singer unveiled his song "Baltimore," which addresses the death of Freddie Gray, as well as referencing the death of Michael Brown, who was fatally shot in Ferguson, Missouri last year - an event that also sparked mass unrest.

"Baltimore" pairs a catchy pop melody with poignant lyrics that begin, "Nobody got in nobody's way/So I guess you could say it was a good day/At least a little better than the day in Baltimore."

The tune continues, "Does anybody hear us pray?/For Michael Brown or Freddie Gray/Peace is more than the absence of war."

The song also contains the line "Let's take all the guns away," a fact that has already captured attention in certain corners of the internet.

Prince is scheduled to perform in Baltimore on Sunday, at an event dubbed the Mother's Day Rally 4 Peace. The concert will take place at Royal Farms Arena.
