Fifty-plus years after Audrey Hepburn’s iconic turn in Breakfast at Tiffany‘s, the name “Holly Golightly” is still synonymous with women who are urbane, free-spirited, uncannily alluring and ultimately unattainable. On Booth debut and new single Vinyl Fling, K-Prime finds himself head-over-heels for just such a specimen. Backed by SUPERLATIVe and Meech Gold‘s mellow, jazzy production, the Queens repper does his damndest to win her over, mixing earnest flattery (“I know women like you / Chillin’, independent like you / Determined, with a driven IQ.”) with erudite references to the musical greats. Will he succeed in his quest? Based on the movie’s surprise ending, there may be hope (although things don’t turn out quite so well in the original Turman Capote novel). Either way, listeners charmed by Vinyl Fling will want to keep it locked for latest leading up to the currently unscheduled release of K-Prime’s next mixtape, I Don’t Know Yet.
