article imageReview: KING glorious on debut studio album 'We Are KING' Special

By Markos Papadatos     Jul 19, 2017 in Music
Rising R&B group KING shines on their breakthrough studio album, "We are KING," which they released independently. They write, produce and mix their own music.
This album earned them a 2017 Grammy nomination for "Best Urban Contemporary Album," where they were nominated among albums by such heavyweight artists as Gallant, Rihana, Anderson Paak and Beyonce (who won for Lemonade).
It opens with the smooth and sultry ballad "The Right One," and it is followed by the hypnotic "The Greatest." Equally calming is "Red Eye." Their breathy vocals are ethereal on the lengthy "Supernatural."
Equally beautiful is the delicate "Love Song," as well as "In the Meantime" and the refreshing "Carry On." "Mister Chameleon" is comprised of strong melodies, and "Hey" has a whimsical vibe to it. They slightly pick up the pace with the mid-tempo and sassy "Oh, Please!" and the record closes with "The Story" and "Native Land," the latter of which has a Sade vibe to it, which ought to be taken as a compliment.
KING is comprised of twin sisters Amber and Paris Strother, as well as Anita Bias. They release their material from their own studio. Paris produces their music, while Amber and Anita share the vocals. Most impressive about this trio of female musicians was that they were mentored by the late Prince, whom they opened for, and performed alongside him at the L.A. Forum.
The Verdict
Overall, KING is amazing on their debut studio album We are King. Their vocals are heavenly, and there are no filler tracks on this collection. They deserve to be the next big thing in the contemporary urban and R&B music scene. Their CD garners an A rating.
