Kwabs 'Wrong Or Right'

Kwabs welcomes in 2014 with the SOHN produced 'Wrong Or Right.'


On the heels of taking us to church on one of our Top Songs of 2013, Kwabs welcomes in the new year with a brand new showcase of his gospel-inflecting, high powered pipes. The sophomore union of the Ghanaian/Londoner with electro-soul multi-instrumentalist/producer SOHN, "Wrong Or Right" turns dancefloor vibes up following their soul churning partnership on "Last Stand." Kwabs, whose more than earned a spot as a symbol of today's renaissance moment in R&B, looks back to a golden era in 90s crooning this time around. His latest gem will join "Sprit Fade" and "Last Stand" on a 4 track EP also titled "Wrong Or Right" (due out February 3rd). Ben Pearce– who brilliantly reworked Anthony Hamilton's Cornbread, Fish & Collard Greens– was tapped on for a remix of the EP's namesake. Until then, listen to "Wrong Or Right" below.
