Hi Love brings the sweetness of her stage name to the surface on her track “Queen and Slim”. The single is the second from her upcoming full-length record Cold Wind, and showcases 90s R&B passion and a floating, stunning voice.
“Queen and Slim” embraces romantic love in its sweetest forms. With the title as a nod to a deep screen love and a snippet of Kanye West’s “Bound 2” filling out a melody, the heat here is real. Hi Love even breaks down into speech for a candid touch.
The video for the song shows two different kinds of date. The take-out, high-rise, Chicago skyline in the background type of nighttime romance is contrasted with (and lit up by) a casual date on a playground. Here, daytime sweetness is so achingly sweet you want to spend real time with this smitten couple. Hi Love, for her part, serves as narrator and flourish to the scenes as they play out.
