Fonzworth Bentley, the former umbrella-toting manservant-turned-host of MTV’s “From G’s to Gents,” hits the music scene with his first single, “Everybody,” featuring two of hip-hop’s biggest artists, André 3000 and Kanye West.
The song is on his anticipated forthcoming album C.O.L.O.U.R.S., an acronym for CoolOutrageousLoversofUniquelyRawStyle. He explained to Vibe.com the inspiration for his album: “It’s bossanova, rich New Orleans jazz. There’s some ghetto ATL, but like throwback ATL, not like what’s going on now as far as Atlanta music. There’s some rich classical sounds. I play the violin; there’s some of that flavor. I named the title that because every song is like its own color.” The album is set to drop in spring of 2009.
