Enjoy one of the best songs of 2015 right now.
R. City, aka Timothy Thomas and Theron Thomas, are about to make a big impact on pop music. Funny enough, they already have as songwriters and producers penning smashes for everybody from Rihanna and Nicki Minaj to Miley Cyrus. However, now they're in the spotlight, and the St. Thomas brotherly duo turn up with a debut single that's impossible to shake in the form of "Locked Away" featuring Adam Levine of Maroon 5 from their forthcoming debut What Dreams Are Made Of [Kemosabe/RCA Records] out October 9.
"Locked Away" adds a new dimension to the genre, weaving together hip-hop, Carribbean spice, a magnetic reggae-style refrain, and Levine cameo. The boys don't lose sight of the islands adding a distinct bounce from back home, but it's still perfect for the club or even as a wedding song. Timothy and Theron tell a powerful story lyrically of true love asking, "I want to know would you stick around?"
This is something distinct and different that needs to be heard on a mass scale. It's also the beginning of a phenomenal "artist" career for R. City as they ascend to the status of pop royalty with the release of What Dreams Are Made Of. Enjoy one of the best songs of 2015 now.
