Aside from earning a role in Halle Berry and Daniel Craig’s forthcoming movie drama Kings, KR is quickly evolving into a promising star. In hopes of eclipsing his label as hip-hop’s dark horse, KR premieres his new EP, titled The Intermission.
“With this project I really wanted to show my versatility as an artist,” KR tells Billboard. “I enjoy making different types of music, for different types of people, that can be enjoyed in any type of setting. I feel with each song I wanted to display a different part of myself that I can’t normally display in any other artistic medium. I’ve always used music as a getaway from my real life struggles and problems. And I hope when other people hear this project, they can relate and understand what I’ve been through, and find a piece of them in myself.”
One of KR’s strongest tracks from The Intermission is his latest single, “Party.” The laid-back record finds KR reminiscing on his past blunders with women. “I was encouraged to display a visual showing the different types of encounters I’ve had with women, all in one setting” KR states. “From being the guy who is not cool enough, all the way to getting a smoothie poured on my head, I’ve experienced it all. I realized later that I’ve actually attracted more women when I show no interest in them, which is kind of confusing.”
