Remy Ma has released the video for her single, “Melanin Magic.”

The video, like the song, is a celebration of Black beauty and Black women in all of their glory. Featuring Chris Brown, the single is expected to appear on her upcoming album, 7 Winters and 6 Summers.  

In a heartfelt message to fans, the rapper wrote about the song, “I wanted to make “Melanin Magic” to remind you that you are black art. I see you, and I see past the outside, your beautiful heart is worth love and appreciation.  Don’t let anyone tell you that you aren’t enough. You are smart and incredibly important. Be proud of your natural look and celebrate your hypnotizing beauty. Let your melanin skin shine bright!”

Remy has been passionate about uplifting and helping women since her release from prison in August 2014. She has been vocal about prison reform and honest about her struggles with infertility and the high cost of IVF

“I know firsthand how it is to be judged for almost everything you do, so to my black women, I want you to know that you are valued in a world that sometimes takes us for granted” the rapper continued in the letter. “You are confident. You are fierce. You have a fire in you that can never be extinguished.  You are made in God’s perfect image. Your melanin makes you exactly who you are and your black is so magical!”

Check out the video for “Melanin Magic” and the full letter below.

To All My Beautiful Fans,

Did you look in the mirror today and recognize your beauty and your worth?  I know it’s hard when people judge you based off your skin tone. I wanted to make “Melanin Magic” to remind you that you are black art. I see you, and I see past the outside, your beautiful heart is worth love and appreciation.  Don’t let anyone tell you that you aren’t enough. You are smart and incredibly important. Be proud of your natural look and celebrate your hypnotizing beauty. Let your melanin skin shine bright! We all come from different sides of the spectrum, but whether you are dark, light, or right in the middle, never forget how gorgeous you are both inside and out. 

I know firsthand how it is to be judged for almost everything you do, so to my black women, I want you to know that you are valued in a world that sometimes takes us for granted. You are confident. You are fierce. You have a fire in you that can never be extinguished.  You are made in God’s perfect image.  Your melanin makes you exactly who you are and your black is so magical!

Love,

Remy Ma
