The New Royales - Cover of Foster Sylvers' "Misdemeanor" (stream) (Single Premiere)

by PopMatters Staff

31 January 2014

Consisting of industry pros who've worked with Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, Eminem, and Pink, the New Royales show their know-how on their cover of Foster Sylvers' 1973 hit, "Misdemeanor".
 

If some of the vocals on the New Royales’ take on the 1973 Foster Sylvers’ hit “Misdemeanor” sound familiar, it might be because you recognize singer Liz Rodrigues from her featured role on Eminem’s “Survival”. Consisting of industry pros who’ve produced and written for the likes of Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, and Pink, the New Royales recently came out with their new mixtape Freedom’s for the Brave, a collection of covers that ranges from Jefferson Airplane to Depeche Mode. Their level of know-how shows on the polished, jaunty take on “Misdemeanor”, which premieres here on PopMatters.
