Kenneth Whalum – “Ghost Town”

blame it on Meka November 6, 2015

Kenneth Whalum may not frequent the hallowed halls of the DopeHouse, but that’s for a good reason: the singer, saxophonist, and composer has spent the better part of his days currently backing up D’Angelo. After working, performing and touring with the likes of Big K.R.I.T, Maxwell, Puff Daddy and JAY Z, the Memphis-bred artist will release his own solo effort Through Hell & High Water before the year’s end.

With a target due date for the winter, Whalum unveils its latest single “Ghost Town.” A solemn song about the somewhat more strenuous times of a relationship, Whalum explained to that the song aims to provoke sentiments of that awkward moment that exists when a relationship hits a crossroads. “Ghost Town” is a sonic representation of that space between wanting to keep the relationship alive, or cutting it off and moving on with life, a sentiment that many people can attest to.
