Marsha Ambrosius pens a heartfelt tribute to those lost on the piano ballad “Sky.” The British singer dedicates the song to Philadelphia rappers Jimme Wall Street and Lil Snupe, who passed away last week, and her idol Michael Jackson, whose four-year death anniversary is today.
“I was compelled to write and play this song because I heard it in a dream,” said Marsha, whose sophomore album Friends & Lovers is due later this year.
She shot footage of clouds on her iPhone during a flight from L.A. to Philly. “Felt only right to put the two together as I reflected on the lives lost these past couple of weeks. Jimme Wall Street, Lil Snupe, Aunty,” she wrote. “I can listen to this and remember. I can listen to this and want to forget. I can listen to this and mend a broken heart or feel it break. I made this song to FEEL!”
