Tink’s New Single “Tell The Children” Is a Haunting Song About Police Brutality

In the wake of the protests in Ferguson, Timbaland protégé Tink uses her voice to take a stand on the chilling track Tell The Children. Premiered on the Breakfast Club, the track opens with a haunting cry of “Don’t shoot!” and riffs on Lauryn Hill’s Doo Wop (That Thing) over a swirling, dramatic beat. Hill’s warning to “watch out” becomes a chilling imperative in Tink’s new song. Check out the powerful track below.
