STORY OF SONG
“Tough on Myself” is the opening track on New Yorker King Princess’ (real name Mikaela Straus) debut album: “Cheap Queen”, which was released in mid-October 2019.
“Tough on Myself” was written and produced by King Princess herself (like songs on the “Cheap Queen” album) with her co-writer Nick Long and fellow producer Mike Malchicoff. The song consists of King Princess discussing how she is too tough on herself, and how honestly – she wants someone else in her life to not be on her own. The track features heavy bass lines and choir-like vocals from Princess herself. King Princess first performed the track on her “Pussy Is God” tour in 2018 and confirmed it would be featured on her upcoming debut album.
There is currently no music video for the track, but its official audio video has over 43,000 views on YouTube since its upload in October 2019.
