When Dante suggested to his songwriting Dad that he write a song that addresses racial profiling, neither one of them knew that it would turn out to be so impactful. That song, however, appropriately called the “I Can’t Breathe” song – is so compelling and so real that the song itself takes your breath.
Using a dramatic blend of R&B and pop, the tune creatively conveys a very familiar narrative that African Americans and others that are often the victims of police misconduct can easily resonate with. It is extremely thought-provoking with harsh, but truthful lyrics, and the topic is no joke.
Irvin, who calls himself The Undiscovered Artist, wrote and produced the song in his home studio within about 8 days. He’s also the singer.
“My dad is the genius songwriter,” Dante says. “I’m just the co-pilot, but the way this song turned out will stun people. It really is a breath-taking song that was written with George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor in mind.”
Currently, the song can be streamed for free on YouTube, on SoundCloud, and via the song’s official web site at ICantBreatheSong.com
