After landing co-writing credits on D'Angelo's 2014 comeback effort Black Messiah, which recently took home Grammy Awards for best R&B song for "Really Love" and best R&B album, songstress Kendra Foster has been fine-tuning her own material for an upcoming solo effort. Here, she brings the funk and feels with her new offering "Promise To Stay Here," premiering on Billboard.
"“Promise To Stay Here” came about unlike many of the songs I've written with genius producer Kelvin Wooten. Instead of building the song from scratch as we typically do, Kelvin pulled a track from the "vault". The track screamed Chaka Khan circa Rufus era sound & I totally approached it melodically with a "what would Chaka do" attitude," the former member of George Clinton’s Parliament Funkadelic tells Billboard.
