Hi Love – “The King” single
“Now you got some things on yo mind. Let me brighten your day, I can be your sunshine. You need someone that a listen, I’ve got time. You were looking for a love that keeps giving. The love you found is mine. You deserve the best nothing less. 24 karat golds, big chair, velvet robes. Scarlet purple in yo clothes, lavender oil on yo toes. Wisdom in yo souls, understanding that only God knows. So if you’ve never been told you’re a special kind of breed, royalty carpet roll. And you my king every day, that’s why just like Burger King you can have it your way.” – lyrics
‘The King’ tells an adorable tale about a woman who desires to treat her significant other as a king. Apparently, he’s been working hard all day at work, and all she wants to do is to give him a nice massage with a happy ending. Also, she plans on listening to him tell her all about his day while he sips his drink of choice and blows his cigar.
‘The King’ contains a relatable narrative, pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the likable tune possesses jazzy instrumentation flavored with contemporary R&B and neo-soul elements. Furthermore, “The King” serves as a wonderful presentation of what listeners can expect to hear from Hi Love’s latest album, entitled, “Chicago Amoré.”
“I can treat you like a king and that’s exactly what you are.”
“‘The King’ is a song about a female waiting for her man to arrive home so she can cater to him. She wants to treat him like a king and the song explains all the things he’s deserving of. The inspiration behind this song came from my desire to make a song that shows appreciation for men and connecting with women who treat their men like kings.” – Hi Love explained
Hi Love’s music takes listeners into a velvet world filled with hope, peace, and truth. Also, her sound amplifies feelings of pure love, capturing the ear of the broken. Her early works include working with Kanye West, (Grammy-nominated producer) Needlz, and (Vice President of Capital Music) NO I.D.
Hi Love grew up listening to Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Curtis Mayfield, and Minnie Riperton. She spent her teenage years in an area known as Hyde Park, where B-Boys would breakdance on the corners of streets. During this time, she was heavily influenced by the Hip Hop culture in the early and late ‘90s. This was the same time she was introduced to singing classical music. Hip-hop and classical training added a special edge, vocal control, and range to her eclectic sound.
“Love is patient and love is kind. Many things will pass away but love never fails.”
