King Princess who is signed to Mark Ronson’s label Zelig Records to find out some interesting facts about her.

The singer-songwriter, who grew up in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, shares that “aesthetically,” her biggest musical inspirations include Cher, Tina Turner, Perfume Genius and The Beatles and her favorite album is Physical Graffiti by Led Zeppelin. Asked who she would love to one day collaborate with, the “1950” singer says that it would be a tie between Nicki Minaj and Jack White. Noting that she’d be open to one collaboration with both of them.

Speaking of her music-making process, King Princess calls it “messy and scattered,” adding that a lot of it is “really independent” and that “about half of it is extremely collaborative, so it’s this weird mixture of me being alone and doing shit, and trusting the people I love, and asking their opinion and advice.”

King Princess also opens up about the meaning behind her song “1950,” The inspiration behind ‘1950’ was… gay history,” she states, “And the way that our people had to hide in public, and how that affected the way that we love each other now.”
