Drummer-turned-singer, songwriter, producer and multi-talented performer G FLIP today shares ‘Queen’: a new collaborative single with Oakland-raised, Brooklyn-based artist mxmtoon, listen HERE.
Premiered on triple j, the Rostam Batmanglij (Vampire Weekend, HAIM, Clairo, Maggie Rogers) produced single was penned in Los Angeles and perfectly marries G Flip’s distinct vocals with mxmtoon’s gentle tone. The accompanying video directed by Adam Kiers also premieres today, watch HERE.
Of the release, G Flip shares:
“Queen was written about the strong women around me, the queens that raised me and the queens I’ve met through my years. My idea of a queen is not necessarily linked to gender; queens come in all forms and walks of life.
To me a queen embodies power and strength; they embrace all they are fiercely yet gracefully.”I’m also super stoked to have mxmtoon on the track with me. I was first introduced to her while trying to find ukulele chords to a Khalid song and found her cover on YouTube years ago.
She makes awesome music and her voice has such a cruisy timbre to it so I was thrilled to have her jump on Queen with me. She is also an avid croc lover and part of the LGBTQIA+ community, so obviously it just made sense!”
“so happy to be a part of “Queen” with G! she and Rostam were such a joy to work with and so so much fun to collaborate with on creative as well. i’m so glad that it’s still possible to make art and music with someone even when they’re on the other side of the world, and I’m lucky that I got the opportunity to feature on G’s song. ‘Queen’ is a power anthem for any person, and I’m so excited for people to love it as much as we do!”
Throughout a challenging 2020, G Flip shared three impressive singles including fan favourite ‘Hyperfine’ and it’s remix featuring rising US artist LoveLeo, the anthemic ‘You & I’ and ‘I’d Rather Go To Bed’.
Her dream collaboration with iconic shoe brand Crocs came to fruition with the release of the G Flip X Crocs Classic Clog, which sold out in less than half an hour.
Flipo also made a huge triple j Like A Versiondebut when she covered ‘Lady Marmalade’ on International Women’s Day. The Like A Version went on to be the biggest of 2020, scoring over 2 million views and out streaming the next highest by double the number of views.
G Flip also won the 2020 MTV EMA for Best Australian Act, covered NME Australia’s May Edition and soundtracked YouTube’s 2020 Wrap video. In the three years since she’s been releasing music, G Flip has gone from strength to strength to strength.
Following the release of her critically acclaimed debut album About Us, she scored three ARIA AwardNominations, #2 in triple j’s 2019 Album Poll, four places in triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2019 and a number of gold and platinum certified singles.
