Lady posted the track yesterday (July 17) on her website and the track has been making its rounds on the Web as well. Named after Casey Anthony, the young mother who was indicted on charges of murdering her 3-year daughter Caylee in 2008, Anthony’s case received massive media attention ahead of her July 5 acquittal this year of all charges. No stranger to being controversial herself, Lady’s aggressive track has little to do with the case itself with the title serving as nothing more as an attention-grabbing song title.
To Lady’s credit, the track’s motivational “keep your head up” shout out to the imprisoned and criticism supporting wrongly incarcerated inmates belies the sensational use of Casey Anthony’s name in the song’s title. Lady also manages to display a degree of depth as she decries the use of capital punishment as a means of justice.
