In what many fans assumed to be a cryptic love note, Harry Styles tweeted, “I love it when we play 1950” on Wednesday (March 7). As fans ruminated over what it means, Mark Ronson was quick to clarify that Styles’ tweet was lyrics from the retro-pop track “1950” by King Princess, who is Ronson’s first signee to his new label.
“that would be one Harry Styles shouting out @KingPrincess69 and her debut single “1950”, the first release on our label Zelig Records,” Ronson tweeted shortly after Styles.
“1950” is a laid-back pop-rock ballad that acts as a love letter to King Princess’ significant other. The song features soulful vocals and is accompanied by a painfully adorable video that was released last month.
The track is the first official release from both King Princess and Zelig Records. Check out Styles’ sly shout-out and the stunning video below.
I love it when we play 1950.
