It was suggested by The Guardian this week that the song also refers to the death of Eric Garner, The Man that died last year after a police officer put him in a chokehold. In the song, the lyrics ‘Breathe out, Breathe in’ might refer to ‘I Can’t Breathe’ –  the phrase that led a nation wide protest against the act and police brutally in general. ‘I Can’t Breathe’ were Garner’s last words.

The song was produced by two hip-hop master minds: Kanye West and Alex Da Kid. Is this an attempt by the singer and her massive crew to show a more serious side of her? Or just a simple marketing tool to get into the hearts of the American crowd? Click the play and decide.
