King Solomon is a recent smash hit that brings together the talents of Adi Kora and Pocket Flash Mafia, raining down with an immediately upbeat and vibrant energy, quickly engaging the listener and leaving that hook running indefinitely through their mind.
There’s a classic feel to this single, a clear set of reasons as to why it’s created such a storm online. Those nostalgic vibes bring through a hint of reggae and Sean Paul alike, fusing pop melodies with a dance-hall brightness and bounce. With this though, there’s a definite level of crisp and clear modernity – the song feels new, exciting in being so, and the hook is so instantly familiar that it’s easy to walk away with and indeed recognise the next time around.
On top of what are an undoubtedly effective gathering of building blocks, King Solomon offers up an immensely optimistic and uplifting aura. Right the way through, good vibes fill the room – the soundscape is multi-layered, beautiful, loaded with melody and passion and positivity. Then you get the concept, the short lines, the sense of character in the leading voice and the story-line. There are also a few touches of metaphor, simplistic yet fairly memorable once again. All of which helps seal the deal.
A mighty anthem of a pop song that’s defiantly intentional in terms of reaching a wider audience over the coming months. Well worth a listen at volume.
