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 Stylesย tweeted a lyric from her debut single 1950. ‘I love it when we play 1950′. Next February and March, if everything goes as planned, sheโ€™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. โ€˜I feel it now / Painโ€™.

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