Finneas releases his new track
After teasing his fans from last few days, Finneas has finally premiered his new track. The song is very emotional and it’s something almost everyone around the world can relate to. 2020 has been a very tough year for all of us. COVID-19 has taken many lives. And amidst the viral pandemic, Black Lives Matter movement started when racism was hitting its peak.
Finneas’s song What They’ll Say About Us is inspired by Black Lives Matter and Broadway performer Nick Cordero, who died of COVID-19. Most of the song was written in June when he attended many BLM protests along with his girlfriend Claudia Sulewski. However, a few verses were written when Finneas started following updates from Nick Cordero’s family on his illness and hospitalization. He never met Nick and never knew his family before. However, he started following the updates after Finneas saw the news of his health.

He believes many people can relate to the song whose families were hospitalized while protests were happening outside.
You’re tired now, lie down
I’ll be waitin’ to give you the good news
It might take patience
And if you don’t wake up
I’ll know you tried to
I wish you could see him
He looks just like you
Finneas has written these lines artistically as they stir something deep inside your heart. The verses above focus on people hospitalized, and who we might never see again.
Through the song, Finneas honors COVID-19 victims and their families. The song already has 650k+ views with 101k likes on YouTube.
