Dear Love by King.S #FlyahReview




King. S is a 30 year old R&B artist from Pensacola, Florida. Raised around a musical family, King was bound to be groomed into an exceptional superstar. Using music to escape from problems and life issues, he utilizes his talent in a stupendous manner. Today, he graces us with a passionate driven LP entitled "Dear Love".

The overall production performance of this album is quite up to date with sounds of the 808's pounding and nice neo-soul melodies. One of my favorite things of this album is that it can definitely be considered a concept album. The album features up to 8 love inspired songs that bring you into the mindset of a young man that is learning about love as the days go by. The cover is quite vibrant showing a cartoon version of King.S dressed in white seeming as if he was in deep contemplation.

This project is intended to be a letter about the state of relationships and his perspective on topics that men normally don't discuss. This album starts off with clean melody and vocal range on the intro track, "Here I Am". The track is short and sweet but have so much to cover. He talks about how being separate has a deep lesson but sometimes you think about the person who is now distant. The intro brings light on the subjects that is later to be talk about throughout the album.

On the song "What Would You Do", he sings about having relationship problems and trying your best to fight through the issues. It's a statement asking what would be your claim to have a stable state of love. I love the beat and reminds me of Usher's hit record in 1997 named "Nice and Slow". The next track which is one of favorite on this album is entitled "Ouh Oh" which gives detail of a late night rendezvous when two come together and make time for each other even though they know there are difficulties in life that prevent them of joining. With thoughts in ways to make things work, a little enticement draws a person closer to that promise land.

The last but also my most favorite record is the CD entitled song, "Dear Love". The flute instruments really bring out a magical feeling and his performance was definitely the best throughout the album. He makes it vintage with more of a 1960's blues club way of saying his words. The chorus is quite impactful as he sheds light on how throughout his whole relationship all he ever wanted to do was to make the girl happy. However, things seem impossible with the lack of effort from both parties.


If I have to rate this album on a scale of 1 to 10, I will give it a 7 for tremendous harmony, consistency of concept, and well mixed production. If you are a fan of R&B, this album will definitely be a good listen

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play?
