Kings' DeMarcus Cousins teases release of R&B album

DeMarcus Cousins is set to release an R&B album under the name "Boogie Smooth." (IG: boogiecousins)DeMarcus Cousins has been promoting the "release" of his debut album. (IG: boogiecousins)

DeMarcus Cousins is no more, as the man who once bore that name shall be known henceforth as "Boogie Smooth." The Kings big man has supposedly adopted that working name for the release of his first album -- an R&B tip naturally entitled "Misunderstood" -- and the launch of his professional music career. In other, completely unrelated news, Tuesday is April Fool's Day.

That aside, let's indulge the thought for a moment. A preview of the album's debut single ("Emotional") will supposedly be released on Cousins' official website at some point, but for now visitors land on a splash page with some basic details. It notes that the album was produced by Chase N. Cash, who in the past has done production work for Eminem, Drake and Lil Wayne. It details that Chance the Rapper and Rick Ross will both appear in featured spots, the latter on a bonus track appropriately titled "Big Fellas." Yet the only promotional material to appear anywhere online comes with a conspicuous lack of, well, singing:

Nothing suspect here; just an NBA player who once had an in-arena game built around questionable karaoke abilities miming at a piano while a few music types talk about a mystery project in the vaguest terms possible.

Update: The Kings have confirmed that "Misunderstood" isn't a real project, per Yahoo Sports.
