Coming off the heels of Essence Festival, Music and Other Drugs has stumbled upon Mississippi born r&b singer, JK Howells. The rising star has released his debut EP, Unpacked, under the Grammy Award-Winning production team MILK + Sizz, and independent distributor, EMPIRE. JK Howell’s 5-track EP Unpacked captures the essence of the r&b sound. The title track “Unpacked,” has a nostalgic feel, as it takes us back to the early 2000’s.
JK Howells musical influence spans across genres. Howells states, “I grew up listening to Barbership Quartet Music, but i’m also a huge Gucci [Mane] fan; so my music and performances have always had those traditional and urban influences.
The collaboration between Milk + Sizz & JK Howells is clear on Unpacked. A stand out track is “I Do,” which was the debut single from JK Howells. Milk + Sizz and JK Howells have struck gold with this debut project, and we expect more greatness to come out of the rising r&b star very soon.
