King Princess’ “Pussy Is God” Is a Divine Celebration of Queer Love

King Princess continues her reign as one of the best new voices in pop. Following a Harry Styles co-sign King Princess ignited a spark amongst tastemakers and what would soon become an avid fan base. The breakout artist would transform this spark into a full-out wildfire over the course of a series of dazzling pop singles and an impeccable debut EP, Make My Bed. Today, King Princess further demonstrates why she is the next line in for the throne of pop queen with an infectious new single, video, and tour announcement.

"Pussy Is God." This is not us simply stating a clear-as-day truth, but the title of King Princess' latest new hit. Opening on a series of chopped vocals and booming production, King Princess strides across an empowering yet intimate track. In typical King Princess fashion, "Pussy Is God" is likely to get stuck in your head for weeks to come, but that's really most striking here is the impressive lyricism. While it's not too difficult to sparse the track's core message, as King Princess prides herself in straightforwardly singing about themes relating to sexuality and female empowerment, the way in which it is presented is refreshingly novel.

King Princess quite literally elevates idea of godlike pussy to holy stature on "Pussy Is God" but the idea of queer love as a whole. Sexual and religious allusions are placed in the same verse, making the two indistinguishable. The re-contextualization of queer love is nothing new to King Princess, who similarly explored the concept on her breakout hit "1950." It's this unique interpretation and narrative that King Princess lends to not only "Pussy Is God" but all her music that has garnered her a passionate fanbase in the LGBTQIA+ community and beyond. Oh, that and the fact that all of it exists to be played on repeat.
