Princess Konstance Returns With Captivating New Single ‘MY HEART’ Featuring Majeeed

After closing out last year with her ‘No Time’ collaboration with legendary producer Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins, which was one of the standout songs on the official soundtrack to the award-winning 2023 film adaptation of The Color Purple, 19-year-old Nigerian R&B and afrobeats princess KONSTANCE is excited to unveil her brand new single titled ‘MY HEART’.

Set for release on June 28 via Bankulli Entertainment, the label imprint of Beyonce and Kanye West collaborator Bankulli, ‘My Heart’ is the first taste of Konstance’s highly anticipated debut EP In The Beginning arriving later this year.

Written and composed by Konstance in collaboration with rising afrobeats sensation Majeeed (Tiwa Savage, Joeboy, BNXN) who also guest vocals on the track, ‘My Heart’ is a captivating R&B and afrobeats fusion track that tugs at the heartstring with heartfelt lyrics and resonant songwriting that brilliantly capture the essence of young love, and the emotional longings of hopeless romantics.

Sonically, the track is underpinned by beautiful vocal performances from Konstance and Majeeed, as well as lush R&B melodies that are complemented by vibrant afrobeats and dancehall sensibilities.

Singing in English, Pidgin, and Yoruba, and exuding remarkable chemistry, Konstance and Majeeed wear their hearts on their sleeves in resounding fashion, with the 19-year-old Konstance showing an extraordinary artistry that far surpasses her young age, and Majeeed reminding listeners just why he is one of afrobeats finest new voices.

‘My Heart’ also comes with a music video directed by Bushboy Machiavelli (Ayra Starr, Bella Shmurda, Oxlade) and shot on location in Lagos, which perfectly complements the song’s narrative of young love, and brings the track further to life.

Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘My Heart’, Konstance says, “This is one of my favourite songs have recorded so far. Because it’s a love song, I’m sure people will be wondering if ‘My Heart’ is from a personal experience. The song is about giving your heart up for love, and although I have never been in love, I’m saying if I do give my heart up for love, I hope I won’t get hurt.

Hence the line ‘if I give you my heart, dakun ma je ko fo’, which means ‘if I give you my heart, please don’t break it’, and putting Majeeed on the song was the best idea. I mean what’s a love song without Majeeed!”

Konstance’s rise to prominence has been nothing short of spectacular since her debut last year with the breakout single ‘Melo’. Her undeniable talents earned her the Breakthrough Talent prize at the 2023 Silverbird Awards, and she also comes co-signed by industry heavyweights like Don Jazzy, Tiwa Savage, and Kizz Daniel.

Internationally, her collaboration with the legendary Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins was featured in the 2023 movie-musical The Color Purple, and more recently, Konstance has been cast in the Idris Elba-directed film Dust To Dream, alongside British pop icon Seal.
