Clintn Lord has been making waves for a minute with the release of "Ay! Caramba" but at a time when Black Americans are literally fighting for their lives, he's released a new song reflecting the energy of the protests going on across the country. Recorded just two days before his 27th birthday, he released his latest single, "Toxic." With production from Hugo, the auto-tuned laden track channels his anger and frustrations surrounding the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery.

"I was really fed up with a lot of things going on,” he said about the song in a statement. “My birthday was coming up on Monday. They set the police station on fire here on the day I was in the studio. I just addressed what was going on. I was frustrated and I feel like everybody was frustrated.”

Check the song out below.

Quotable Lyrics
Maybe, I should just go wavy
Maybe, I should just get crazy
Maybe I should crash Mercedes,
I should crash Ferrari,
I’m sorry, I’m crazy
