Get ready to hear a lot more from (and about) Raleigh, N.C.'s own King Mez. He's been kicking around the regional scene for a minute now, but it's likely that the rest of the country (and world) will catch on once they hear his new single, "The Allure."

The track features a soulful hook from crooner Drey Skonie and one hell of a beat from none other than J. Cole. Hopefully the like-minded North Carolina artists have more in the works, because "The Allure" is, simply put, excellent. You can stream the single and view its artwork below. Mez's new album, My Everlasting Zeal, drops May 15.
