Butterfly Black, a dynamic new R&B duo consisting of GRAMMY award-winning bassist/producer Ben Williams and Broadway’s Nala Syndee Winters, has just released their latest single, “Lifetime,” along with a stunning black-and-white music video directed by Lauren Desberg.
The song is a lively love anthem for our current times that draws inspiration from the music of legendary male-female soul duos like Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell and Ashford & Simpson. The lyrics of “Lifetime” touch on various aspects of love, including self-love and the importance of self-care through therapy.
Butterfly Black’s strength comes from the diverse artistic backgrounds of its members. Williams is an accomplished jazz bassist who has collaborated with numerous heavyweights in the music industry.
At the same time, Winters is a powerful Broadway stage singer, dancer, and actor who has performed in several acclaimed productions. The duo’s debut 5-song EP is set to be released later this year, and they are currently gearing up for a series of performances as a group and individually.
The release of “Lifetime” follows Butterfly Black’s successful debut single, “I Just Want To Love You,” which showcased their intoxicating musical chemistry in a summery mid-tempo jam reminiscent of Leon Sylvers’ legendary production work at SOLAR Records in the early-80s.
The single is available to stream on all digital platforms, and the duo encourages fans to support their music by purchasing directly via Bandcamp.
Butterfly Black is a unique and exciting addition to the R&B landscape, and their blend of bubbly, boogie-centric, and upscale R&B will captivate audiences worldwide. Keep an eye on their Instagram for updates on future releases and performances.
