King Princess is pulling at our heartstrings, once again. Her full-length debut album, “Cheap Queen,” is packed with honest and detailed encounters of living and loving in a modern LGBTQ landscape.
The album opens with “Tough On Myself” a moody and soulful introduction— she sings, “is it so wrong to just want someone else?” From there, she carries us into “Useless Phrases,” a quick tune with a vintage beat. “Hit The Back” has already become a dancefloor favorite. In “Cheap Queen,” the album’s namesake, the 20-year-old comments on her rise to stardom: “since everyone wants me it’s harder to be myself.” Packed with an outstanding vulnerability, her tracks have titles like, “Do You Wanna See Me Crying?” and “You Destroyed My Heart.”
King Princess didn’t hold anything back with this album, and while it may be titled “Cheap Queen,” her music is rich with success.
