Five years ago, R&B believed it had found its future in three songs. They came from King, a Los Angeles-based trio of two sisters Amber and Paris Strother and Anita Bias. Those songs made up an EP titled The Story, brimming with lush, dream-laden R&B. Prince was among their top endorsers.
However, as suddenly as the music flooded the space, it stopped. King went underground to record their new album. Years passed. Stars rose and fell. Friday, King finally emerged from their studio with a record. The album’s title makes a simple statement: We Are King.
