Malice & Mario Sweet - Kortney Luv
Previously heard lending their guest vocals to cuts by Wizdom & Epidemmik (My Circle) and Grynch (In the Rain), Seattle R&B duo Malice & Mario Sweet make their first foray into the solo Booth spotlight with Kortney Luv, a fresh single off their latest studio album. The singers are not just a musical, but also a romantic couple, and it shows here. Backed by SemiOverweight‘s cozy keyboard chords, they exhibit an easy intimacy as they celebrate the feelings they have for each other. Amazingly, guest Isabella Dugraf doesn’t sound like a third wheel; instead, her backing vocals mesh seamlessly with the headliners’ mellow harmonies. For this silky-smooth cut and more R&B gems, check out Malice & Mario Sweet’s Enjoy:Like:Love LP, available online as of July 29.
