Most of you that it’s been a long, long time since I’ve bestowed a project with the coveted five-star review. One of the scant few LPs that almost made it to the mountaintop was the debut album from We are KING, an incredible and highly underrated release.
The ladies of R&B royalty have been relatively quiet since, so I was thrilled to hear “Space Oddity,” their cover of the David Bowie classic.
“Space Oddity” serves as the lead single of Modern Love, a tribute compilation that will not only highlight Bowie’s groundbreaking career but how that music has connected with artists of color over the years. We Are KING will be joined by Meshell Ndegeocello, Khruangbin, Helado Negro, L’Rain, and more. Check out Modern Love May 28.
No word on when we’ll get that follow-up project from We Are KING, but this will have to tide us over until now. Check it out below.
