Violin duo, Black Violin, enlists singer Melanie Fiona and lyricist Black Thought of The Roots for their latest track, “Send Me A Sign.” The soothing track is lifted off their debut album, Stereotypes, which was released on September 18.
I don’t have anywhere to be tonight / Think about it, it could just be you and I / Cause’ you’re the only thing that’s worth more than time / So send me a sign,” Fiona sings.
Stereotypes debuted at No. 2 on the iTunes R&B Albums chart. The album also includes guest appearances from Robert Glasper, Kandace Springs and Pharoahe Monch.
Wilner “Wil B” Baptiste (viola) and Kevin “Kev” Marcus Sylvester (violin) are Black Violin, a duo who radically fuse hip-hop and pop with classical music to create a kaleidoscope of sounds uniquely their own. Classically trained musicians, they have opened for such diverse top names in music as Kanye West, 50 Cent, Aerosmith and Tom Petty, and also creatively collaborated with the likes of Wu-Tang Clan, Linkin Park, Wyclef Jean and Alicia Keys, the latter for the Billboard Music Awards.
