We know what we’ll be partying to this weekend.
Spotify begins its New Music Friday playlist with Katy Perry’s comeback “Chained to the Rhythm.” After that track, “Don’t Kill My Vibe” by Sigrid plays next. Starting with a few understated piano chords, the track leads into a larger-than-life chorus that makes our bodies want to move, thanks to a defiant beat and fun, clap-back lyrics.
The anthem makes us want to know, who is Sigrid? We Googled her and found out she’s a 20-year-old Norwegian, and this is her first single ever. “Don’t Kill My Vibe” is a fantastic debut for the rookie.
“When we wrote ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe,’” Sigrid tells NME, “Martin (Sjølie) asked me what I’d been thinking about, and I started talking about this difficult previous session I’d been in. I could’ve described this upcoming moment (of truth) as a bad teenage novel but ok, short version: I almost killed that Mac keyboard due to angry writing.”
We can’t wait to see what’s next for Sigrid. Perry may be a queen, but there’s a new princess in town who we know will reign supreme.
