King Princess – Pain

21-year-old Brooklyn-born Mikaela Straus is currently making a living as King Princess. Her career exploded in March 2018, when Harry StylesΒ tweeted a lyric from her debut single 1950. ‘I love it when we play 1950′. Next February and March, if everything goes as planned, she’ll support him at the European leg of his world tour.

Meanwhile, King Princess is working on her sophomore album. Pain, co-produced by Mark Ronson, is the second single to be released ahead of it. A rollicking pop song, incorporating old-school sounds like a house piano. It teams an upbeat melody with devastating lyrics. β€˜I feel it now / Pain’.

Speaking with Zane Lowe on Apple Music, she said about Pain: β€œI think what I love about it is it’s got that fucking piano. It’s the ultimate George Michael meetsΒ Erotica-era Madonna meets an incredible remix if you’re in a gay club that makes you uncomfortable and horny.”
