KING Releases Debut Single, ‘In the Meantime’
The all-lady R&B trio KING has finally resurfaced with new material. Their new single, ‘In the Meantime,’ is a pleasant, dreamy surprise that’ll massage your ear drums. One of the members, Paris Strother, is behind all instruments, arrangement and production on this song with strings by Tom Lea.
KING, which comprises of twin sisters Paris and Amber Strother and friend Anita Bias, have been together since 2009. They released their 2011 EP, ‘The Story,’ which was co-signed by Erykah Badu and landed them a feature on Robert Glasper‘s ‘Black Radio,’ which won Best R&B Album at the Grammys this year.
Kendrick Lamar sampled their song ‘Hey’ on his song ‘Chapter Six,’ from his 2011 ‘Section.80′ album. To top it off, the legendary Prince has taken the trio under his wing and has mentored them since discovering their music online in 2011. With a stirring debut single and the genius behind KING, we can only anticipate their full-length album
