Purple Funk reaches #2 Billboard Hot Singles Charts.
If Mothers Favorite Child are anything; comparing them to an elemental force wouldn’t be too far of a stretch. The R&B/Soul super group, brought together by acclaimed visionary producer Paris Toon, Mothers Child is known for blowing fans away during their live performances, as well as, climbing the Billboard charts. Their new single is something remarkably special. “Purple Funk” is a shout out to one of the greatest performers of all time… Prince. Paris Toon & Mothers Favorite Child featuring CeCe Peniston poured all their love for the musical icon into this new single, which will quickly become a fan favorite.
“This song is dedicated to Prince and my dear friend John Blackwell (Prince’s drummer),” commented Toon. “I wrote and produced this song to show where my inspiration for music first came from. I wanted to create something that Prince would give me a thumbs up on and when John told me he would have loved the track that was all I the validation I needed.”
If that inspiration was not enough, adding the undisputed “Queen of House Music” CeCe Peniston to the track was the icing on the cake. You can be sure this funky, dance jam is going to be heard everywhere – including the EDM scene that adores CeCe as much as anyone.
The new single features the bonus track “Wish,” which offers with a heavier edge calling back to the funk of the 70s and icons like Chaka Khan. Many will be surprised to see the versatility that CeCe delivers.
“CeCe is an artist’s artist and true living legend,” says Toon. “Purple Funk will showcase her talent in a phenomenal, new way.” With Purple Funk, Paris Toon & Mothers Favorite Child are letting the world know that R&B, Funk and Soul are alive and well in the 21st century.
