If you've frequented this site, you're probably already familiar with the music of King Deco. One part pop, one part R&B, I first met King Deco when we both attended one of our mutual friend Stef Lang's shows (you've heard Stef's work quite a bit here, as well!).
I wrote about King Deco's latest single, "Read My Lips," in one of my NYC Scene Report columns last month, and now she has a video for the single, and it's pretty amazing. The clip features some artsy 3-D awesomeness, as well as fire eating, and the best supporting role by a snake since Britney Spears' "Slave 4 U" performance at the 2001 VMAs.
When it comes to the song, the beat for "Read My Lips" will get you moving, as it's reminiscent of Color Me Badd era R&B, and I mean that in the best possible way (you know you loved "I Wanna Sex You Up," even if the whole, "Makin' love until we drown" lyric was ridiculous).
I highly recommend turning up the volume on this one, and viewing the video full screen.
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
