Kentrell - Encore
If there’s one thing that makes Booth newcomer Kentrell happy, it’s making his audience happy – whether on the mic or between the sheets, “it’s [his] pleasure to please you,” and he’s confident that his feel-good style will leave listeners and lovers alike screaming for an Encore. On the latest single off his forthcoming debut studio album, the Mississippi-to-Chicago transplant gives readers a tantalizing taste of his “pop-soul” sound, influenced both by his birth state’s gospel legacy and his home city’s streetwise sensibility. Over Grammy-nominated production duo K.P. and Malay‘s steamy instrumental, which builds from subdued guitar arpeggios to an epic, string-drenched chorus, the artist comes with a combo of soulful vocals and considerate-lover lyricism likely to leave female listeners weak in the knees. If this track has you shouting “Encore!” keep it locked to our front page. U Will Believe isn’t set to hit stores till 2010, but you can rest assured that DJBooth.net will bring you all the latest from this promising crooner.
