With the recent resurgence of funk on the Top 40 airwaves, Epic Records groove marauders Lipstick Gypsy decided the time was right to drop off the steamy visuals to their debut single, “Infatuation,” a melodic ode to four decades' worth of funk in its various incarnations.
‘“Infatuation” feels good and you can never have too much of that in the market,” the duo’s lead vocalist, John Thomas, told BET.com. “We’re gonna flood it with sounds that everyone can vibe to."
Lipstick Gypsy, who was signed by L.A. Reid and producer Salaam Remi, started out as just a one-time collaboration between John and producer Chris Liggio, but their chemistry was too good to just stop there. Chris, who has worked with everyone from Jay Z to Nicki Minaj, says that the group’s sound is an extension of what’s already in his own heart and soul.
“If you cut me open this is what you’ll find,” Chris explained. “I love chord structures and groove is everything to me so this is what I naturally do. I sit down and this comes out, as opposed to working with other artists in the past and trying to tailor something to a specific person. This is more natural.”
