King Princess’ provocative ‘Pussy is God’

King Princess has no inhibitions. The 19-year-old emerging singer’s latest single, “Pussy Is God” isn’t at all what you’d expect.The word “pussy” isn’t weaponised or objectified, there is nothing vulgar to offend your mother’s ears – this is a love song, a hymn.

‘Pussy Is God’ is dedicated to, and co-written by King Princess’ girlfriend, the actress Amandla Stenberg. Love and sex are intertwined to create the kind of reverence that becomes a religion: “You know that it’s God, baby, when you’re around her / She’s God and I’ve found her”, she sighs.

The silken instrumental of ‘Pussy Is God’ softly shimmers, weighted with an infectious beat. Harmonies glide beneath the all-bare vulnerability of her voice, which gives way to the thrill of synth in the chorus that builds this song to a skyscraper high.

Every element, from low-key guitar all the way to pitch-shifting adlibs, pulls ‘Pussy Is God’ in an entirely new direction. It’s an impossible track to pin down – and much like King Princess herself, it doesn’t want to be.
