“I wrote “Fly” right after hearing that Darren Wilson was not being indicted for murdering Mike Brown,” says Raury. The song is his first new material of 2015, and comes after “Dead People,” his surprising collaboration with Gucci Mane. “Fly,” is an acoustic guitar-based song with an uplifting chorus and a spoken word section at the end. The song also features Raury’s “best friend” Malik Shakur.
