King Princess nails it on SNL
It was a good SNL this week – not only did is there plenty of impeachment material for the writers to be getting their teeth into, the host was Will Ferrell, and King Princess was the music guest. That’s a good show.
The first track from King Princess was 1950, and looked super-sharp in a blush pink tuxedo that is now on our Christmas wish-list.
The second track was Hit The Back, and our queen rocked out in a sexed-up sequin bra and a black kilt. Iconic.
Who is King Princess?
It’s impossible to ignore the ridiculously talented King Princess – every track she releases is a total bop, backed up by super-strong music videos that demand attention.
Born in 1998 in Brookly, King Princess – known as Mikaela Straus when not on stage – was immersed in music from a young age. Her father was a sound engineer, and she was a keen student of a number of instruments as well as the production process.
Signed to Mark Ronson’s label, King Princess launched her recording career in February 2018, with the release of thing single 1950. The song is a tribute to the novel The Price of Salt by Patricia Highsmith, and is a celebration of queer love.
She’s been a hit on the festival circuit, and has clearly established herself as an artist worth watching.
King Princess talks publicly about identifying as part of the LGBTQ community.
