They are four fun-loving guys from Orange County, California that came together to create ‘feel-good’ music. They describe their music as pop hits with rock, reggae, R&B and classic soul influences. The group consists of bass player Lui Kirimaua (Ivan), lead singer Sasualei Maliga (Junyer), drummer Jerome Taito (Rome) and lead guitar player Taumata Grey (Mata). Their unique backgrounds include Hawaii/Samoa, Fiji/Kiribati and Tonga.
They became a YouTube sensation with tracks like “Alcoholic” and “Wade in Your Water.” “Ain’t No Stopping” is their latest single and the lyric video was officially released TODAY!
You can view the track’s video here:
This single will be on their as yet untitled debut studio album to be released later this year. Along with putting the finishing touches on their album, Common Kings just wrapped a tour with the all-female pop group, 5th Harmony. This tour comes off the heels of sharing the road and stage with Justin Timberlake and Cee-Lo. After all that, their touring is far from over- In October, Common Kings will head out on another tour with Sammy J and Leilani Wolframm.
