Prince's previously unreleased track "Mary Don't You Weep" plays during the end credits of Spike Lee's latest film, BlacKkKlansman. On Wednesday (Aug. 22), Lee released a music video for the song, which features scenes and stills from the movie.
The four-minute and 20-second clip shows real-life hero Ron Stallworth (played by John David Washington) fighting for civil rights in the late '70s, as he skillfully infiltrates a Colorado chapter of the Ku Klux Klan and exposes their plan to attack people of color. The video also shows Topher Grace's portrayal of former KKK grand wizard David Duke.
"Mary Don't You Weep" ends with a photo of Lee and Prince sitting courtside at a basketball game in New York in 1998. This is the second Prince music video that Lee has directed. Back in 1992, he directed the late musician's "Money Don't Matter 2 Night."
"Mary Don't You Weep" was announced as part of the track list for Prince's upcoming posthumous album, Piano & A Microphone 1983. While a release date for the album has yet to be announced, "Marry Don't You Weep" is currently available on streaming services.
