An irresistible slice of Philly-soul, “Brown Sugar Queen,” featuring up-and-coming Swedish soul-sensation Janice, was written by Devon Gilfillian, Danny Silberstein, and Ryan Linvill, and produced by Jeremy Lutitio ((Joy Oladokun, NEEDTOBREATHE.) The new track is Gilfillian’s first new release in almost two years, and first for his new label home, Fantasy Records.
Devon Gilfillian on “Brown Sugar Queen” (featuring Janice):
“This song is very personal to me. “Brown Sugar Queen” is about my girlfriend – and an appreciation for all the beautiful, thick, black & brown women in the world. I want to celebrate black and brown joy, and connection and love–how beautiful it is to be brown, to be big, or small, or whatever size you are, and to feel sexy in that skin.”
(With her high-profile starring role in Netflix’s upcoming mini-series The Playlist¾based on the rise of Spotify¾the cover of Swedish ELLE and a Swedish Best New Artist GRAMMY nomination to her credit, featured vocalist Janice (full name Janice Kamya Kavander), is quickly becoming a major presence on the Scandinavian music scene.)
