If you’re an avid Honey Popper, then you know we love supporting our fellow queer icons, and so we’re more than happy to present to you; Tia Kofi and MRSHLL’s collab track, ‘Heart Beating.’
Tia Kofi has teamed up with K-POP artist MRSHLL, and we are beyond ecstatic! ‘Heart Beating’ not only blends the singers’ voices so well together in this electro-pop track, but it keeps us engaged from start to finish. Our fave parts of the track had to be the build-up intro, which we absolutely loved, as well as the surprise of having these two artists on the same track! Who would’ve thought we would have these two teaming up?
Can’t you just picture this track being played by a character in an indie queer film? We honestly would love that because come on, we’re absolutely obsessed with ‘Heart Beating,’ and other people should be too.
And we don’t want you to leave with just one great track to check out, so here are two more you definitely need to add to your playlists!
Known as the UK Drag Princess of Pop, Tia Kofi, aka our Queen, doesn’t ever miss. And besides our love for her music, we love her and her personality so much that we think we would make such great friends. But before we side-track and continue to just gush about our love for Tia Kofi, let us tell you about something else we love, ‘Loving Me Like That.’ This track right here has us scream-singing in our cars every time it comes on. The lyrics are literally “All of the time we spent together / Wishing that we never started / Who do you think you are? / Loving me like that,” and you’re gonna tell us those aren’t scream-singing worthy? And if you’ve been here a while, you know we are suckers for sad bops, and this is a sad bop.
MRSHLL – ‘metamorphosis’
Okay, we need first to say that we love MRSHLL, his smooth vocals, the bedroom pop music that he makes, and how he is always so open about his sexuality. And ‘metamorphosis’ has to be the perfect song to introduce you to him, and it’s also our fave. Right from the first verse, we were hooked, with the lyrics being “I was told when I was very young / Do as you’re told and always hold your tongue / Don’t you dare react / Fix your face and keep your emotions intact,” we knew it was going to be a hit. Some serious inner self-loving had to be done after listening to the track. A track about shedding your old outer layer to reveal who you really are and the progress you’ve made is the perfect track to follow up ‘Heart Beating.’
So, how many times have you streamed Tia Kofi and MRSHLL’s ‘Heart Beating,’ be honest with us, if you haven’t yet, here’s your chance, you can stream it here!
We love to see queer artists showing up and showing out together on a track, and ‘Heart Beating,’ further pushed that love. How much did you love the collab between Tia Kofi and MRSHLL? Let us know in the comments down below, tweet us @thehoneypop, and talk to us on Facebook and Instagram!
