Kendall Roy, erstwhile woke-king son of media mogul Logan Roy, seems to have dropped off from his mission of transforming Waystar Royco into some sort of UBA+ streamer. Now, he’s pivoting to music. In 2020, Kendall released a rap tribute to his father titled “L to the OG.” Two years
and one season of television later, the failson is out with a follow-up: a tender, earnest, rather pitchy cover of Billy Joel’s “Honesty.” Age 40 seems a little late in the game to start pursuing a music career, but we don’t think record labels are going to be kicking down his door over this one. Still, what Kendall lacks in vocal ability he more than makes up for in commitment … and the wealth to buy the rights to a Joel track for a vanity project.
Fourth wall aside, Nicholas Britell’s soundtrack for the third season of Succession is out today, giving us all new music to dramatically type to. And with this full-length version of his truncated performance in “Too Much Birthday,” you’ve gotta love Jeremy Strong’s commitment to the character.
