Photo Credit: Richard King's InstagramMixtape: “Thoughts of A King” Unmasked By Richard King TheNV November 23, 2015 Artist to Watch, Music Upcoming R&B artist and Songbook Entertainment’s newest protege, Richard King, has spent this past year developing and experimenting with a sound to call his own. In the midst of his artistic development, recording and collecting a plethora of songs is not abnormal…in fact it is so normal that the studio sessions have now transformed into an orgasmic tease that is a 5-track mixtape. Thoughts of A King – Vol. 1 embodies a small collection of uptempo, well mastered and, of course, Songbook Entertainment producer Troy Taylor’s trademark “sexual” blend of club-bangers and bedroom inspired melodies. The mixtape, released last Thursday (Nov. 19), showcase a familiar, fellow Songbook artist, Trey Songz-esque musical style via contributions like “Fallen” and “Who Knew“, but also combines Richard’s signature style (from his debut single “Plus One“) in a track titled “Slave“. (SIDEBAR: If you recall, The NV, chopped it up with Mr. King last year to assist in his introduction to music fans via our Q&A WITH RICHARD KING AS HE PROMOTES ‘PLUS ONE’ VISUAL.) The surprise EP also offers the singing neophyte’s growing fan base a bit of nostalgia through 80’s group Guy’s (consisting of Teddy Riley and brothers Aaron & Damion Hall) throwback sample “I Like“, and an adequate re-make of Ginuwine’s debut classic single, “Pony“. If this release is any indication of what to expect when the burgeoning singer drops his long-awaited album, I, for one, look forward to the day…making Richard King one “Artist to Watch”.
