Album Watch: A Girl Named King
Thursday, September 8, 2011
King has been in and out of the spotlight due to a bout with multiple sclerosis, but since recovery she's been on the touring circuit. She's got a huge following in her native Jamaica and overseas and she was last spotted at the Afro-Pfingsten Festival where other faves, Joy Denalane and Nneka also made an appearance. She's also still dropping sounds on her webpage (her Michael Jackson tribute got some spotlight from me a while back) and last year she released in Japan her fourth album, Warrior Girl. She also continues to make us all look like lazy bums because she's also prepping a new album slated for November. Phew!
Diana is releasing on her own label, AgirlNamedKing, (ear warning: music will start up at blog opening) and from the sound of things, her Reggae flavored R&B sound is still muy bueno. So catch yourself up and follow her blog, DianaKingdom, for further info about the woman and her music if you're still committed to her groove like I.
Oh, and Diana can still blow fish, shrimp, Ariel, Sebastian and all of 'em out of the water with that voice she has. Note Exhibit A, below:
