EMPRESS – “Lovely I Am” (Video)

EMPRESS has had a storied journey through the arts — quite literally. As a classically trained ballerina who spent over a decade with the San Francisco ballet, and having played the lead in An American in Paris on Broadway — this is one artist ready to break out and tell her own story. 

Taking charge of the story is exactly what EMPRESS does on “Lovely I Am”, her debut single and a chilled pop anthem to finding the beauty in yourself. Thoughtful and catchy, EMPRESS utilizes a bit of jazz and electronic synth flourishes to lift her song-leading voice. Produced by Bart Schoudel — who has previously worked with Beyoncé and Justin Bieber — “Lovely I Am” is your next heavy rotation summer addition. 

The accompanying clip showcases EMPRESS’ excellence in ballet, with a spinning, whirling routine alone, then with a partner, before the lights shift — matching the electronic nature of the synth sound — and a lineup of dancers move in time with the track. It’s a performance that moves in parts, all lead by EMPRESS’s steady voice, movements, and presence.
