Originally from Brooklyn, New York, King Princess has made a name for herself with her single, “1950”. At only 19 years old, she is self-produced, writing her own songs and playing all of the instruments. I love any artist with a quirky name (Lorde, Cathedrals, MisterWives etc) so I knew I immediately had to look up her music. I was not disappointed. The emotional, soulful voice lends itself well to the fun indie pop beat. The song is about a sort of hopelessness about love, but manages to still make it playful.
The meaning of the song is even more heartwarming though, because it’s about queer love. King Princess says that “‘1950’ is a love song told through the lens of queerness. Queer love was only able to exist privately for a long time, expressed in society through coded art forms. I wrote this song as a story of unrequited love in my own life, doing my best to acknowledge and pay homage to that part of history.”
To make things even more interesting, on March 6 Harry Styles decided to tweet out a lyric of her song. Since One Direction fans are true sleuths and found her music and shared it like crazy. Even with all that help, she still had a steady rising number in her Spotify before the tweet. That can only be attributed to how good the song truly is.

Listening to this debut single has me excited for anything else she puts out. I have not been able to stop listening to it, which always means I’m obsessed with a song. Her video was also released in February and manages to capture that fun teenage romance that is perfectly movie-worthy. King Princess is a refreshing take on pop music, and everyone should give her a listen.
