Flores – “Brown” single

“I need all my ladies, zapatistas, Imma ride with you. Liberdad, we gonʼ die for you. Abuela in ya soul built that backbone, loot the land they stole. So when they ask you where your people come from, when they ask you where your people come from. For 16,000 years we were here, valleys stained of blood and tears. Mexica, let them know, this the land weʼve sewn, laid the seeds to grow.” – lyrics

‘Brown’ finds Flores singing proudly about her Mexican heritage, CBP and ICE, border control, justice for the poor, and other issues plaguing Brown people. Apparently, she’s not afraid to speak her mind and believes Latin Americans will be alright in the long run. Later, she sings with passion, “Need that revolution, take back the land they stole. Brown people, brown love, brown skin, brown trust, brown hurt, brown worth – eating off that brown earth.”

“Stop taking my people.”

“I wrote this song to the 10-year-old me. The young indigenous kids who are from Mexico and Latin America, are all too often left out of the conversation. That we are from this land. We are not invaders, or illegals, and deserve to be treated with dignity and humanity. Our brown issues. This is a love song to validate our pains, our stories, our histories, the cruelties, and injustices. And a big middle finger to the government institutions that continue to oppress us through the generations.” – Flores explained

‘Brown’ contains a relatable narrative, English and Spanish lyrics, and ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with fans of Jazmine Sullivan, H.E.R., and Frank Ocean. The soulful tune possesses groovy bass and horn-laden instrumentation flavored with Latin R&B and neo-soul elements. Also, “Brown” is featured on Flores’s debut EP, entitled, “In The Lives They Left,” which includes her standout single, “Fool’s Gold.”
