KONGO BONES NEW RELEASE MERCEDES

Kongo Bones’ new release “Mercedes,” featuring Miia Yang is the perfect carefree bop we needed to kick off Summer 2021. This song not only inspires good vibes, but it alludes to the importance of continuing your life journey no matter your circumstances. Kongo shares in more detail how his life experience inspired him to create such a melodic tune! 

THE HONEY: WHAT IS THE STORY/MESSAGE WITH YOUR SONG? WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION?

KONGO BONES: “The song really embodies the idea of; “it’s not where you going, it’s how you’re gonna get there”, and what’s better than by way of Mercedes Benz. It only felt right since we got to the studio by the homie jay, who was whipping guess what… a Mercedes Benz. The song was recorded on the last day of my first Cali trip so the song had to capture all the energy and sights I took in during that time.”

THE HONEY: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LYRIC OF THE SONG? BREAK IT DOWN FOR US!

KONGO BONES: “‘Old habits and a couple new friends.’

You can take the dog out of the hood but you can’t take the hood out of the dog. Even though the setting was different with a few new faces mixed in, I’m still back on my bullshit and with all the shenanigans but this time new characters unlocked.”

THE HONEY: ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO SHARE ABOUT THIS SONG? 

KONGO BONES: “This was my first time working with an actual producer and not a beat off YouTube so I’d like to thank Matthew for the chance and everybody we came across in Cali for the hospitality all the way from Torrance to Long Beach to Cali.”
