Macy Gray is at peace with herself.
In the new video for her song “Buddha”, the singer performs in her studio while reminiscing over footage from her career.
The song, which was released on her 2018 album Ruby, also features Gary Clark Jr. on guitar.
“Underneath the Gary Clark solo, the incredible production by Johan Carlsson, and the Teyana Taylor-directed video is a little story about my battles with mental health,” Gray told Rolling Stone.
“Though it has held me up and set me back many times, I was able to write this song because I am winning my war with it,” she said. “And I’m able to celebrate my present and look forward to my future because of it. To everybody struggling with something, it’ll be okay, just don’t let it beat you. Buddha says, ‘Concentrate the mind in the present’ – and that’s where it’s at all the time.”
Along with the video release, the 51-year-old has set up a fundraiser for gun control reform.
