The other day I posted a funky, soulful track from Chino Maurice called “Luna”, and today I’m happy to premiere this joint that Chino has been working on with Ryan Leslie (you already know this man can produce, right?)┬ácalled “Candy”. It’s a velvety, smooth blend of funk/rock and R&B/hip-hop. If you’re a fan of N.E.R.D., this is for you. I’m loving what Chino is doing. It takes a lot to get me out my blogger chair for a pre-blog dance, but Chino is two for two as far as that goes. This dude’s got me doing James Brown impersonations. Check out Chino on Facebook, and listen to/download the track below.
