Brooklyn based artist King Princess has recently released a music video for her song, “Holy,” and she does not fail to make believers out of those searching for godly visuals to a well-crafted, sensuous love song.
The video opens as Mikaela Straus, the real name of the up-and-coming queer singer, surfaces from beneath the waves of a rippling pool before the video transitions to scenes of Straus singing to the camera and, later, swimming clothed in the same body of water from the introduction.
At only 19 years old, Straus has amassed over 100 million Spotify streams on her breakthrough debut single, “1950,” and is now signed to Zelig Records, an imprint of Columbia Records owned by Mark Ronson who has worked with the likes of Amy Winehouse, Lady Gaga and Bruno Mars.
She also performed at the queer-centric LadyLand Festival earlier this summer, and self-produced a five-track EP titled Make My Bed released in June. The EP includes both “Holy” and “1950,” as well as the latter’s follow-up, “Talia.”
