(March 10, 2021) Lots of folks have been talking about the movie Judas and the Black Messiah, which tells the story of the Black Panther movement. And a musical centerpiece of the movie comes from the hard working, uber talented singer and songwriter H.E.R.

“Fight For You” has the immediate feel of a sweaty 1960s summer day, with a funky, rich underpinning, vocal arrangements that fall somewhere between classic Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield, and an immediacy that gets the listener’s heart pumping. And H.E.R. brings it all into focus lyrically:

Mental institution causing so much confusion
Seems the only solution is a new еvolution
We can't take it no more
No, it can't be ignored
When they knock on your door, will you be ready for war?
