Los Angeles based artist and producer Kingdom releases his sophomore album NEUROFIRE, an electrifying follow-up to his breakthrough debut Tears in the Club.
Producing for artists like SZA and Kelela, Kingdom is credited as a progenitor of the intersectional R&B-dance music scene that has deeply seeped into the culture over the last decade, He has continued to showcase new talent and inspire progressive sounds in the mainstream collective consciousness.
Accompanying NEUROFIRE, Kingdom has unleashed a new official video for breakout single “Lightning” feat. emerging singer Kayla Blackmon, whose voice complements the production perfectly as she performs through a seamless sequence of terrestrial visuals. Visionary experimental nail artist Sojin Oh created the nails & styled the clothing, as well as overall creative direction alongside Kingdom and Noemi Polo.
Sharing more insight into the collaboration and video, Kingdom says “Working with Kayla on this visual breathed new life into the song for me. Kayla’s movements are so fluid and commanding. Filming the final shot on the wet ultra-reflective fabric was my favorite moment and created an effect I had never seen before, completely otherworldly and fitting for the slippery high energy atmosphere of the song.” Kayla adds “Lightning is a song about love and obsession, and the electricity between two people right before they make contact. The collaboration came together so effortlessly to create this musical and visual masterpiece. I really appreciate Kingdom for putting together this amazing vision and to everyone who helped! I’m so grateful to be a part of it all!”
On ‘NEUROFIRE’ there are also guest vocals from GHOST, Tiara Thomas, Pheona, UNIQU3, Semma, LUVK and Tre Oh Fie - a notable list of new artists from the producer known for making career-defining music with some of today’s most respected voices.
