World Premiere Video: Eliza Neals ‘Sugar Daddy’ (Feat. King Solomon Hicks)

Contemporary blues song "Sugar Daddy" will stick to your dancing shoes all summer long -- Written by iconic GRAMMY and Songwriter Hall of Fame inductee, and backed by two rising stars.


Although it was never released, “Sugar Daddy” throws back to the early days of Detroit’s original R&B/Soul. Written by Grammy™ winning legend and Songwriters Hall of Fame™ inductee Barrett Strong Jr. when he was just a teenager.

From a woman’s point of view, Eliza Neals‘ additional lyrics adds just the right amount of sweetness with tongue-and-cheek fun. In walks the handsome award-winning blues guitarist King Solomon Hicks as the featured artist. 

Eliza Neals honors the gut-wrenching, soul-splitting intent the American roots of contemporary blues represents with inspired songwriting, live performances, and magic not seen in years. Guitarist/singer King Solomon Hicks has a fierce and distinctive style all his own.

We are proud to premiere their new summer single and official music video for “Sugar Daddy.”
