After taking part in an epic Verzuz moment with Earth, Wind, & Fire, The Isley Brothers are keeping the celebratory vibes going with their new single, “Friends and Family.”
In the Erik White-directed music video, Ron Isley and his lovely wife, Kandy (formerly of R&B group, JS), are seen hosting a cookout at a California mansion, filled with good food, good drinks, good music, and a good ol’ time amongst some good ol’ people. On the 2-step-inducing track, Isley sings about the party’s atmosphere, the love of seeing his people coming together, and introduces the “family and friends dance.”
As celebrities like LisaRaye McCoy, Kym Whitley, Sherri Sheppard, Syleena Johnson, and Vivica A. Fox make cameos throughout the video, Snoop Dogg hops on for a verse, rapping, “I shuffle my feet and move to the left, I check my outfit, I’m so fresh to death/ Hand my drink to wifey and sit my cup down, now the whole fam bam gettin’ down.”
Speaking of Verzuz, Sunday night’s event proved to be an unforgettable Easter Sunday. D-Nice held down the 1s and 2s. Host Steve Harvey came dressed to the nines, interjecting comedic stories as The Isley Brothers and Earth, Wind, & Fire hit viewers with classic soul, music history gems, and reasons to hit their living room dance floor over the holiday weekend. You can watch a replay of the Verzuz over on Triller.
“Friends and Family” is The Isley Brothers’ first single since their 2017 studio album, Power of Peace. Get into their new single.
