BABY QUEEN releases her debut album ‘THE YEARBOOK’
Check the album HERE.
The British monarchy is in bits but Baby Queen, real royalty, reigns supreme. The 23-year-old South Africa-born, London-based artist (real name Bella Latham) arrived in the pop sphere barely a year ago, but has already carved her name deep into its fabric with her crooked sceptre. She is, whether you’re ready or not, the genre’s new anti-hero.
That was a necessary first step in her ascent through the world as a new artist with something to say. But now she’s made her point, she’s ready to turn inwards. Enter a new era of Baby Queen’s story with her new mixtape, The Yearbook. “It’s an American coming-of-age film,” she says of the final project’s concept. “It feels confusing, happy, free, lonely… all of these things you go through when you are growing up”
A Baby Queen love song isn’t the sappy, same-old ballad you’re used to: they’re injected with equal doses of despondency and euphoria – each one like a crackled, 35mm movie playing on loop in your head.
