Chicago's Kweku Collins, who showed out on our recent premiere of producer Odd Couple's "Me Time" track, drops a new song today titled "Kings." It'll be featured on his forthcoming EP, Say It Here, While It’s Safe which drops July 21 on Closed Sessions.
Collins' hypnotizing flows over the heavy, jazz-infused production is a strong look at what he's doing with his successes and how he's furthering his music over the next few months. Halfway through my senior year, I started generating a buzz through blogs and whatnot," he told Complex. "I didn't have any management other than myself, which meant any and all offers and opportunities were coming directly to me. It was the first time money was offered to me for music. As corny as it sounds, I love music more than anything in this world. Because my emotions and my music are intertwined inseparably, as I started getting attention, it made me feel good about myself. My self-confidence was the highest it had been in six years, and I wanted to write a song that reflected that. 'Your Song' was the case, 'Kings' is the evidence."
