Anthony Hamilton & Elayna Boynton – Freedom

January 2, 2013

Frank Ocean may have not made the cut for the soundtrack of Django Unchained, but some very prominent artist such as John Legend, Rick Ross, and Anthony Hamilton did. In fact, Hamilton teamed up with Elayna Boynton to make “Freedom,” an absolute soul gem. Behind Tarantino’s jokes and rambunctious style of Django Unchained is a serious story about slavery, love, and righteousness. Hamilton and Boynton seem to understand that and “Freedom” fits very well with this underlying serious tone. Hamilton told USA Today, “Me, Elayna and Kelvin got to thinking about Django’s story—how sometimes we have to be willing to put it all on the line. And ‘Freedom’ was born from that place. A place deep inside all of us, that fights to free ourselves from the chains of the world.” Hamilton and Boynton’s soulful, yet stylistically different voices play off each other incredibly. The product is a song chock-full of passion.
