I have been a fan of these girls for a minute now, even though they have only released 3 songs and that was in 2011. That’s how dope they are ! KING independently released their first EP to much acclaim; title track “The Story,” (featured on GLAMOUR‘s Top Songs Playlist), “Supernatural” and “Hey” (featured in 2014 motion picture ‘About Last Night’) make up the 3-piece introduction to their carefully crafted future-soul sound. Hours after the release, their EP had traveled far to music lovers and tastemakers alike, trending on Twitter thanks to a dude named Questlove tweeted about them I had to inquire more. KING have since been preparing their debut full-length album due for release in a few weeks. KING’s smooth vibe is a product solely of the three women, Anita Bias and sisters Amber and Paris Strother. They have already made fans of (starting at the top) Prince–who enlisted the trio to open for himself at his L.A. concert last month–Erykah Badu, who roped them into joining her on the bill for Black Girls Rock (L.A.), Phonte of Foreign Exchange–who included Paris & Amber in the intimate line up of their Dear Friends happening. I guarantee you will be the next fan added to the list. And they are cute! Check them out performing their latest single below…..
