King Princess is the queer icon we deserve.
After serving us a string of bops like the empowering Pussy Is God and laid-back Prophet, the American singer-songwriter has dropped another single called Hit The Back – and it has a specific audience in mind.
“Hit The back, the anthem for bottoms everywhere,” she wrote on Twitter.
The track deceptively begins as a ballad as she begs a lover to “run me ’til I can’t go further”, before slowly building up to a massive groove-laden chorus tinged with a disco sound that’s guaranteed to get you dancing.
With suggestive lyrics like, “I don’t care if you degrade me, ‘cause after all, you are my safety”, and “I’ll let you throw it down, hit the back, tell me you need respect”, it’s destined to become a queer anthem.
Hit The Back is the latest track to be released from King Princess’ highly-anticipated debut album Cheap Queen, which is due out 25 October.
