Kxng Tres is the professional name of R&B/Soul singer/songwriter JoaQimein Martin. Born and raised in Crystal Springs, Mississippi, Martin grew up with a love of music. He started singing and dancing at a very young age, inspired by his heroes like The Temptations, Michael Jackson and Ne-Yo. Now, after years of singing in the Clear Creek Missionary Baptist Church Mass Choir he has embarked on a professional career in music.
“Me And You” is the debut single from Kxng Tres, released worldwide to all major streaming services on October 28, 2020. Written as a dedication to Martin’s girlfriend Aaliyah, the song is a soulful R&B piano ballad with a little bit of Funk. Working with producer SIR JAY, Martin lays down a heartfelt love song. The singer alternates between a smooth falsetto and laidback tenor as he sings, “It’s me and you girl, against the whole world.” Meanwhile, SIR JAY lays down a nice bass groove set to a laid back Hip-hop beat. Later in the track he mixes in a bit of bluesy guitar as Kxng Tres ad-libs a personal message to Aaliyah.
