RJD2 Shares Single, "20 Grand Palace"

Beatsmith RJD2 releases “20 Grand Palace,” a new single from his forthcoming album, The Fun Ones (Electrical Connections), dropping  April 17th. Following lead single “Pull Up On Love,” “20 Grand Palace” opens with a flutter of clarinet and strings, before transforming into a horn-driven groove “that needs to give much credit to Patrice Rushen and Chaka Khan,” says RJ. “Initially released as a loosie on the internet, I always felt like the track needed a final push to put it over the top. After sitting with it for over a year, it came to me that my good friend and drummer Chuck Palmer is also a phenomenally talented string arranger. In conjunction with Dave Eggar, they executed the perfect string arrangement that is totally adventurous and still completely catchy to the ear. They knocked it out the park!”
