Budding New York singer, songwriter and dancer, Frankie Zulferino seems to have R&B’s most illustrious performers queueing up to offer him kudos. However, when listening to new single, “Drippin’ In Love”, an exploding modern-day Motown marvel, it’s not hard to realise why Paula Abdul, Ne-Yo and Janet Jackson herself have co-signed the entertainer.
A former contestant on CW’s The Next, mentored by Joe Jonas, Zulferino’s ascent to musical stardom has never shown signs of slowing. On “Drippin’ In Love”, he springs off of a full-orchestra and Motown choir, with Zulferino’s love letter told via a falsetto-heavy pop vocal par excellence, rivalling Justin Timberlake with ease. Now a TikTok sensation as well, his feel-good content has attracted millions of views and 11m likes on the platform, making the entertainer an all-out force for good.
“Drippin’ In Love” is the first single from his upcoming October EP, so it’s safe to say the party has only just truly begun, and we will be here, having a blast, for its duration.
