It’s been 12 years since 112 dropped a full-length studio album, and even longer since hits like “Peaches & Cream” and “Cupid” blared through radio airwaves. After teasing fans with “Strawberry” back in July, the quartet announced the release of their new single “Dangerous Games” on Monday, August 14, making their official return to R&B.
The soulful ballad opens in true 112 form, with Slim’s velvety vocals seamlessly floating atop the sparse melody laced with eerie synths. On “Dangerous Games,” 112 is fed up of the games being played in their relationships — and recognize that not all games end in victory. “I don’t want to play this game of chance anymore/ Cause everyone knows when your queen is gone you don’t last long,” Q Parker croons.
While no official date has been announced for 112’s forthcoming album Q Mike Slim Daron, 112 frontman Slim assured fans that the group’s album will be liberated this fall via Entertainment One. The former Bad Boy ensemble hit the stage with Diddy during the Bad Boy Family Reunion tour last year performing alongside fellow R&B hitmakers Carl Thomas, Faith Evans and Mario Winans.
