Supergroup Vanilla Is Black release debut single, "Mezcal"

Vanilla Is Black – the new supergroup featuring Chuck Inglish, K. Roosevelt, and Kenneth Wright – have unveiled their funky debut single, "Mezcal."

The groovy, psychedelic rock track was released on Friday through Def Jam Recordings.

“I played her favorite song / She likes to drink Mezcal / Served on the rocks with lime / She wants to dance all night," Roosevelt sings on the song's spacey chorus.

Birthed during the COVID-19 pandemic, Vanilla Is Black unites the creative souls of rapper Chuck Inglish of The Cool Kids, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist K. Roosevelt, and songwriter and producer Kenneth Wright.

The group, who cite genre-bending acts like Gorillaz, Isley Brothers, and Khruangbin as their biggest influences, recently performed at Coachella.

They graced Party In My Living Room's on-site stage alongside a series of other stars such as Armani White, DJ Battlecat, and D Smoke.
