Despite being only 24, Allan Kingdom has shown himself to be a true musician on the rise. Making his break into popular culture while accompanying Kanye West on his 2015 single "All Day", the Minneapolis native has continued to build his legacy through a flawless medley of groovy production and melodic cadence. His newest release and accompanying visual, "Energized", expands on the narrative of being re-invented and re-energized – his journey to take the game by storm.
A distillation of smooth flow, "Energized" is fresh and embodies the liveliness of Kingdom in its robust lyricism. Amidst a lush soundscape of vibrant bass and modulated drums, Kingdom's vocals shine through, his tilted drawl noticeably adding a layer of depth to the tonal peaks and valleys of "Energized". Much like the song, the video echoes the laid-back atmosphere with action-packed snippets of the artist going about his day. The crisp lighting and careful curation of dance within the video, effectively adds to the fun and groove of the track, showcasing his personality in a natural, relatable way.
