Monki’s Nostalgic Single "Queen of Hearts" Transports Listeners to a 1980s Nightclub

The versatile professional soccer player and DJ/producer, Monki, has dropped another big track following her debut on Mark Knight's Toolroom Records earlier in the year. Titled "Queen of Hearts," the new single was released on her own label &Friends.

In a tribute to the sounds of the 80s, the waning vocals and synths—which sound like they're from a sci-fi VHS—combine to create a melody dripping with nostalgia. "Queen of Hearts" is all tied together by a stomping beat that could easily soundtrack a nightclub from Miami Vice

Having played for English football club Dulwich Hamlet FC, Monki juggles careers as a professional soccer player, international DJ, label boss, and award-winning podcaster, among other ventures. Alongside the formidable number of fans, awards, and high-profile bookings she's amassed over the years, she also broke boundaries and recently became the first East Asian to have their own show on BBC Radio 1

"Queen of Hearts" by Monki is out now on her &Friends label. You can download or stream the throwback single here.
