Tonight’s the night baby, so blow up on deez. Or, uh, something like that. Take a journey with the Kidz and their red hue as they go from Barcelona to Chicago then back again in their new visual for “Tonight.” And yeah, two thumbs up on the leading lady.

Naledge and Double-O’s latest release, Wishful Drinking, is available on iTunes now.

Kidz In The Hall f/ Yonas Michael – Tonight


After previewing some new music last night on, Kidz In The Hall return with the latest single from their forthcoming Wishful Drinking EP. Naledge and Double-0 get some assistance from Yonas Michael formerly of U-N-I for this record, entitled “Tonight”.

If you’ve been keeping track, this joint is second new offering from the Kidz (“No Doz” dropped last week) and they’re definitely 2-0 right now. The EP hits iTunes April 2nd, so be sure to keep an ear out for that.
