The video arrives a day after the announcement that the Louisville, Kentucky police officers involved in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor will not face charges relating to her death.

Many musicians have expressed their thoughts on the decision, including Cardi B, Common, and TinaShe, the latter of whom took to Twitter to write, “NO JUSTICE NO PEACE”.

Aminé followed the release of ‘Limbo’ with non-album single ‘Hello’, a collaborative release with Empire of the Sun’s Luke Steele. It’s the latest in a string of collaborations for Aminé this year, who featured on Disclosure’s ‘My High’ with Slowthai and recruited Young Thug for his own single, ‘Compensating’.
