The rise of King Princess is no Pygmalion story
Some have described her as Mark Ronson’s new protégé and it’s true that the producer and musician signed her to his new Zelig Records label last year. But at just 20 years old, this young New Yorker knows exactly what she wants, what she likes and what she wants to say. This openly non-binary, multi-instrumentalist has been writing her own songs for a while now. She grew up in Brooklyn where her dad was a sound engineer and, because the apple never falls far from the tree, she explains how something just clicked inside when she discovered the White Stripes. Her first EP, “Make My Bed”, released in 2018, heralds a brilliant future for this pop star who has collaborated with Perfume Genius. The coronation of King Princess is coming soon.
