Derek King’s latest is the epitome of a cut bound to the potential for massive success by today’s standards, and his long list of work as a hitmaker behind-the-scenes only further proves the point.
With his latest “Play,” King is previewing his More Vibes project and introduces us an instant bop that’s likely to keep us going all summer long.
“‘Play’ came about from me being in the studio and talking to my producer on how we can re-shake up the world with another follow-up after my latest single ‘Tetris,’” Derek King tell Hypebeast. “We wanted to bring the same type of vibe but in a different way, so we came up with flipping ‘I Need a Girl Part 2.’ My producer T Kelley did the beat and sent it over, and as soon as I heard the beat I had that melody in my head so I put it down. I’m happy the way it came out! More Vibes and the More Vibes tour coming soon!”
