After featuring on Timaya’s “Kom Kom” hit single from last year, King Perryy is making his first entry into 2019 with the release of two new singles, “Work N’ Grind” and “Murder”. The two releases highlight King Perryy’s replete compositions with the different directions he takes on both songs.
“Work N’ Grind” is a lilting confection that contains the tell-tale percussive bounce of Afropop, but with a lounging, laid-back attitude inspired by Jazz horn samples and a lively drum set. King Perryy’s sensual vocals ride the lightweight instrumentals to tell his inspirational tale of triumph. But it’s his bridge where he drops all the melody to chant “But Wait, Man Wey Hustle Hard Must to Chop Now, No Be Today When Dey Start to Talk Am/ Even sef ehn Look at Us now, ah han bros, You sef Know Wasup Now” that makes the song such a beautiful celebration of the reward for working hard.
On “Murder” however, King Perryy’s sultry sentiments are utilized for a Reggae dancehall fueled romantic Afropop rendition. Here, he features Teni who sings the complimenting chorus and a closing verse with her catchy melodies guaranteeing a pleasant time on dancefloors even for the least gifted dancers.
