Making music that’s primarily a deft fusion of crooning R&B and lounging soul, King El has put his foot forward as an inventive musician with his offerings on 2016’s Far Away And In Sight.
Drawing on his rich cache of influences, the singer fused the hard-hitting punch of hip-hop with the bounce of afropop on the project for a satisfying cache of songs.
Re-emerging in 2022, King El’s latest forthcoming project, Fuckboy Music, is due for release imminently and finds him blurring the line between the personal and artistic across the stretch of the project. Tunnelling into the passages of time and influences that shape fuckboys, King El gives an extended gaze into their lives and the circumstances that have indented them.
The first drop to bring that vision to life is “MYSTICAL,” a delicate R&B song about needing female companionship.
