Today, vocal quintet Citizen Queen release their third original song “Y,” a beautiful, soulful ballad via RCA Records. “Y” is written by pop maverick Justin Tranter (Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber), Grammy Award-winning female hit-making duo NOVA WAV (Beyoncé, Ariana Grande) and Grammy-nominated producer and musician Morten Ristorp Jensen (Lukas Graham, Little Mix). The track is produced by NOVA WAV and Morten Ristorp Jensen.
The accompanying music video is directed by Ethan Lader (Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige) and choreographed by Jamaica (Justin Bieber, Usher, Ciara).
“This song is a huge piece of my heart and I’m so excited for the world to hear it. I hope it brings people peace and healing, like it did for me,” says Hannah.
“Y” follows their second original song “No Ego,” an infectious, attitude-driven, empowered bop which was released in February and included in E! News MixetapE! Playlist and called “…a fierce and fabulous celebration of women recognizing their own worth.” In December 2020, the group debuted original music with power anthem “Call Me Queen” which Nylon included in their Soundcheck column and stated “Modern representation plus Danity Kane-levels of pop ear-worminess? This is the girl group we deserve!” while Refinery29 said “Citizen Queen kicks down the doors with their powerful official debut, and the perfectly placed harmonies, bass, and vocal percussion on the original song all but promise a top spot for the talented newbies.”
