Kings forward Demarcus Cousins

DeMarcus Cousins aka Boogie Smooth Coming for the R&B Crown

Update 2: Guess we got got. It was an April Fool’s Day joke after all, though it was started before the first, and the Kings season is still in deed going on.

Update: The Kings have said there is no such album in the works. Yet physical copies appear to exist.

When the Sacramento Kings finish their season next week, playing their final nine games, chances are, emotions will be high. The team is currently 25-48, sitting in second to last place in the Western Conference, poised to miss the playoffs for the eighth consecutive season. Fans will be emotional, suffering through yet another losing season. The Kings’ coach, Keith Smart, might be filled with emotion, barely able to improve on last seasons record, perhaps considering the lack of job security and potential for success in Sac Town. But none, I deposit, will be as emotional as Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins, who will finish his best season in the NBA (22.1 points 11.6 rebounds per game). Despite these stats, Cousins wasn’t named to this years Western Conference All-Star team, good reason to be emotional, and he will be so emotional in fact, that he plans to release a new R&B single with Chance the Rapper titled, yes, “Emotional.”

Cousins announced yesterday via social media that a new R&B album, Misunderstood, is on the way, and Kings fans are a bit confused. A sampling from the comments on Cousins’ Facebook post announcing the album: “please dont demarcus….,” “How about we focus on basketball not fucking singing?,” “Please tell me this is a joke,” “April Fools joke?” “Don’t do it man. Please.”

As far as this discerning writer can tell, it is not a joke and he will do it. Cousins, who goes by the nickname Boogie, will indeed be singing under the name Boogie Smooth, and the R&B stylings of Sir Smooth are not likely to soothe Kings’ fans worries. After offseason rumors that the team would be sold and relocated, fans were treated to another dismal season. Rooting for the Kings has become akin to rooting for spring to finally get here, or for John Travolta to introduce your wedding. You’re going to be disappointed.

Cousins offers a sneak peak of the song on his website, though once you sign up to listen, the only email that is sent is one promising, “The latest in news, updates, events, contests & promotions from DeMarcus Cousins.” Great? I just want to hear this freaking song and that’s really it. To see just how terrible it is. To see if Shaq does any Diddy/Birdman style shit-talking at the beginning or end. To see if Boogie Smooth will clean up the charts the way he cleans up the boards. This one’s a head scratcher for sure, but mostly the latest development in the recent tragic history of Sacramento Kings fandom. Copies of Misunderstood should come with every piece of Kings gear sold, fans to play, burn, break, toss, or stare at in bewilderment as they please.
