Gabriela Olmedo Catalán aka KING bursts onto the scene this June with the release of her debut single ‘Promise’, a flawlessly produced, life-affirming neo-soul anthem that establishes her as one of the year’s hottest new talent.
Speaking on the track, KING says: “The truth is not always visible, and when it comes to love it can be hard to know whether people’s intentions are the same as yours. In a world where a laugh is not necessarily a laugh and a smile is not that truthful anymore, stating ‘promise you’ll lead me along’ is a vow we all need to be able to love and feel loved.”
