Video Premiere: Spree Wilson “Right One Wrong Time”
Spree Wilson once said of his musical style: “If André 3000 and Janelle Monáe had a baby, I would be their baby, with Cee-Lo as my uncle.” For the Nashville, Tennessee born singer/rapper, he has perfectly described his music that blends everything from catchy pop hooks to dance-worthy raps. His first project, 2012’s The Never Ending Now, showcased his creative influence that infuses southern hip-hop’s origins. It’s one of the reasons why Spree’s name comes up a lot in the conversation of New Atlanta.
“Right One Wrong Time” was well-received for its homage to ‘90s ATL bass pioneers like Kilo Ali, KP & Envy, So So Def Bass All Stars and Raheem. The Artemus Jenkins-directed video finds Spree at a party looking for the right one woman who is just his type. Of course, beautiful distractions come his way, but he eventually finds the one at the end of the night. Hilarious cameos by Sean Falyon and A.ware of Mach Five play their part well.
Watch the video above, and grab Spree Wilson’s upcoming EP, Life in Technicolor, which is produced entirely by The Flush, releasing in April.
