‘In The Name Of Love’ features in The Equalizer 2 which stars Denzel Washington and is directed by Antoine Fuqua. Speaking about Jacob’s track, Antoine said: “‘In the Name of Love’ has a beautiful and important message about love that reflects exactly what our world needs to hear today. The lyrics cut deep and Jacob’s vocals are unmatched. It gives me great pride to have this song included in the motion picture The Equalizer 2. I know audiences will be moved by its emotional impact in the film.”

Spring Aspers, Head of Music for Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group added: “We’re thrilled that Jacob Banks is lending his incredible talent, voice, and songwriting skills to the movie. It’s a perfect counterpoint to the intense, visceral action of the film – it’s anthemic and hits close to home as McCall’s fight for justice becomes a very personal one.”

After aiding the beaten, exploited, and oppressed, McCall’s dangerous past comes back to haunt him and he must use all of his skills to battle the assassins who are out to destroy him. The Equalizer 2 also stars Pedro Pascal, Ashton Sanders, with Bill Pullman and Melissa Leo.
