Amoeba Review

doubleay, Berkeley 05/15/2017

Vocalist Allan Kingdom’s stunning debut album, Lines, should not get overlooked. The Canadian-born, Minnesota-raised artist dropped the project in early April and it’s surely one of the most exciting releases of 2017 thus far. Kingdom’s uniquely iconic vocals and rap prowess command attention. He was raised on traditional African music and mainstream American R&B played by his Tanzanian mother, and he eventually took to hip-hop acts like Pharrell and Outkast. All his influences were prolific and candidly original, pushing him to develop a distinctly unmistakable sound all his own that only continues to blossom on Lines.

 

There isn't a dull moment on Lines; it’s a dynamically grand project on which Kingdom gracefully coasts, fusing a medley of bellowing notes and unforgettable falsettos with quick and punchy rap flows. It’s apparent that Kingdom meticulously crafted each portion of the project to the finest of details. Songs “Down For Me” and “Lines” bolster moving and inventive production that still maintain pop potential, while the substantial songwriting and excitingly grabbing deliveries found on tracks like “Perfection” and “F*** My Enemies” speak to Kingdom’s brilliant, creative mind. Featuring a slew of young talented creatives like Ramriddlz, Kevin Abstract, Cadenza, Finding Novyon, and more, Kingdom only brings like-minded artists along for the album. Once you hear his voice, you are not going to forget it.
