For the first time in his illustrious career, multi-nominated GRAMMY® Award-nominated producer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, composer, personality, actor, and co-founder of Da Internz KOSINE unveils his debut single as an artist “Kings” [feat. Idris Elba]. Get it HERE.
Over cinematic strings, airy horns, lilting guitar, and echoing beats, the vocals immediately take hold with raw emotion before a chantable chorus lifts off. He claims, “Kings are falling everyday, but kings are rising just the same” before dipping into energetic rhymes. Meanwhile, A-list actor Idris Elba delivers a show-stopping spoken word cameo. The music video brings this energy to life in vivid fashion. Watch it HERE.
“Covid 19 has made me take a complete step back in life and just tap into overall humanity. There’s a pandemic going on outside and we need to be there for each other in ways that we’ve never been before. It’s a very selfless & reflective season for us to see what God is trying to tell us right now. I’m praying for all of those on the frontline who are living testimonies of true bravery,” said KOSINE.
Most importantly, a portion of the proceeds from “Kings” benefit MusiCares in its fight against COVID-19.
“As a musician, I’m doing my part to provide audio healing and to keep the mental health of the masses top of mind. In times like these we find out together who we are and who we aren’t. I want all of my brothers to know that they are KINGS contrary to the false narrative of traditional mass media. It is my hope that the princes’ of today grow in this knowledge and lead us into a future honoring the sacrifices of their ancestors.”
The song paves the way for more original music from KOSINE coming soon.
