When you think of international pop stars the first few countries that come to mind are England and Sweden, but let’s not forget about Denmark. The Danish pop star KING is starting to make waves here in the US. We actually introduced you to hear a few months ago when she was featured on the single, “End With You” by Snavs (HERE). Well, the 27 year old singer songwriter is back with a brand new video for her single, “Only U”.
Born in Copenhagen to a Cuban mother and a Chilean father, KING started out her professional career as a dance instructor at age 15 and has took up the mantle as a pop star in 2016 with the release of her debut single, “Promise”. The new song is filled with dark, heavy beats that layered over her youthful, clear vocals. KING also shows vocal versatility using a hushed, grainy style that gives an amazing contrast between the verses and chorus.
The depth of the track shows through with the beautifully crafted production that was no accident. “‘Only U’ is the hardest track I’ve ever recorded,” KING mused. “[Producers] Christian [Nilsson] and [Peter Yushichi St] James made me do everything over and over again because they wanted it to be perfect. I’m really proud of this track: the sound, my tone and the lyrics. If a song could be perfect this is the one.”
We could not agree more. This song is brilliant and shows the dedication and lengths that KING is will to go to make the product she releases perfect. Enjoy this dark, defiant track and know that this is not the last you will hear of Denmark’s future pop starlet.
You can pick up the new single, “Only U”, by KING on iTunes now and check out the music video for the track that was shot on location Berlin.
