Spike Lee Releases Video for Prince’s “Mary Don’t You Weep”. The soundtrack for BlacKkklansman.
Talking about match made from heaven, this song suits this movie perfectly. After the whirlwind of emotions that Spike Lee’s latest film, Blackklansman, takes you on, it was important that the music he dropped during the end credits was right. However, it’s hard to believe that anyone was ready to hear Prince taking it home with his unreleased gem “Mary Don’t You Weep.” Today, Spike releases the video for “Mary Don’t You Weep,” which he also directed (this would be the second Prince video Spike directed, with the first being the video for Prince’s 1992 single “Money Don’t Matter 2 Night”).
The song was recently announced to be a part of a “found” album of Prince’s, Piano & A Miccrophone 1983. There’s currently no release date for this album (which also features a version of “Purple Rain”), but as Lee told Rolling Stone, he felt that this song was meant for him to have.
