TikTok pop star Kings has released 'Different States' - a song that she didn't mean to write, but the words fell out as her dating relationship left her in a different state of mind than him.
KINGS sweet but powerful vocal chords truly shine on this track, both lyrically honest and expressive. A fun fusion of commercial and electro-pop, 'Different States' is both catchy and captivating, offering a fresh and new take on your average heart-break song.
KINGS says on the track,
"Sometimes I can’t wrap my head around how this story turned so sour, but I think the song sums up everything I needed to say. I started dating my best friend. We connected through our careers, and were just friends until something changed. After a month or two of adventuring, making videos, & lots of coffee dates, I really started to see his true colors. On multiple occasions, he brought up marriage & spending forever with me, yet he would compare me to other girls and make it very clear what he liked and didn’t like about my appearance. We were in different states physically and mentally, but the turning point in our relationship was at an event we both attended. Going to this event was actually one of the best decisions of my life & I don’t regret one thing about it. It took a while to put the pieces of his toxicity together, but I’m so thankful for what I learned in this situation. He didn’t even feel like a loss, which is how I knew it was meant to end. Whatever I felt for him can’t even compare with how much I love the songs I have written since then. Now that this song is out, I can laugh about that time in my life, and be thankful for what it taught me."
From the moment her dad played 'Bohemian Rhapsody', KINGS knew she wanted to write and sing songs that moved others in the same way. Music is not only her first language, but, also, her first love. Music is the way she communicates when words alone are not enough. She started performing at the young age of just three, quickly realising her passion for music, placing every ounce of creativity and energy into writing, especially after being rejected and hurt by what she thought to be friends.
Moving to Nashville, KINGS started to create a social media presence on TikTok, gaining over 4 million followers to date, not only establishing a footprint for herself, she created a beautiful set of songs with a three time Grammy nominated producer/composer that fully encapsulated her vision. Years upon years of dedication and hard work have lead to the releases of her fun, spunky set of songs.
'Different States' is out now.
