Fonzworth Bentley has already risen to borderline-household name status via reality TV/music video appearances, Sprite ads, and even an etiquette manual for the street set, but with the release of his long-awaited debut album, hip-hop’s foremost fop will reveal his true C.O.L.O.U.R.S. to a wider audience than ever before. Fittingly, considering the blend of cutting-edge and retro that defines Bentley’s style, the LP’s lead single is a decidedly modern cut based around one of the oldest sayings in the book: “The grass is always Greener on the other side.” Over a synth-heavy instrumental by Christopher Scholar (co-produced by Dion Watkins), Fonzworth describes his enchantment with a woman who seems so much better (and quite a bit bigger, apparently) than the last one. Complete with a catchy hook by acclaimed R&B crooner Anthony Hamilton, Greener is sure to leave CoolOutrageousLovers- OfUniquelyRawStyle in the Booth and beyond bobbing their heads, but will it score Bentley’s LP a solid release date? We’ll have to wait and see.
