LISTEN: Phony Ppl Enlist Megan Thee Stallion for “Fkn Around”
After debuting the track at the Tiny Desk, the Brooklyn neo-soul band took the single into the studio.
Following last month’s appearance at the Tiny Desk as Megan Thee Stallion’s backing band, and hot off the heels of an Original Tracks performance, Brooklyn neo-soul ensemble Phony Ppl are sharing a brand new single today, one familiar to anyone who streamed Megan’s set behind NPR’s miniature bureau. “Fkn Around” sees the pair reconvene for a cleaned-up, funkier rendition of the polygamous anthem.
“We’re all blind to the things that people feel we shouldn’t know,” Phony frontman Elbee Thrie shared of the track. “In this case, she’s got a man but she’s fuckin’ around… Right under her confidant’s nose… In the club. Will she leave the party with the same guy she came with? Or does the night have a huge plot twist in store? Listen and find out!”
The single is the first whiff of new Ppl in 2020, a year where the group has promised a cultural takeover. Stream the single below, or via your prefered DSP.
