Bursting on the scene with the smash hit single “1950” back in February, King Princess, made people fall in love with her quickly. A favourite of the ‘20gayteen‘ music vibe – it’s not hard to see why: she’s got a very sexy and casual vibe, a devil-may-care attitude and damn good music. King Princess keeps her pronouns feminine and makes no explanations about it. Nor should she.
King Princess (Mikaela Straus) recently put out the much anticipated video for her single ‘Talia’. This video features Mikaela rolling around in bed with a doll reminiscing about heartbreak and aching for a past lover. This video also features: smoking! This is a hotly debated issue in the comments on twitter. Is smoking cool again? Is it terrible? Have we done a full loop on the smoking issue and come back to have it be sexy again? It certainly seems pretty sexy in this video.
The video is great and the song is even better. Mikaela’s vocals are so strong and so wonderful. Can’t wait to see what she releases next.
Make My Bed, the debut EP from rising artist, King Princess, is out June 15 on Mark Ronson’s Zelig Records — the label’s first release.
