Princess Nokia – Dragons

nokia nokia2Princess Nokia’s beautiful, love-struck vocals in “Dragons” really help this classic sounding drum n bass track take off into a whole other universe. It’s really sweet and soulful, overstuffed with romance, and the song was inspired by Princess Nokia’s real-life obsession with Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo’s relationship in the first season of Game of Thrones. The video features her going on a date with real-life boyfriend Wiki Morales and is filled with lots of nostalgic nods to late 90’s culture: VHS tapes, Bart Simpson t-shirts, X-Men, video arcades and anime. The whole thing makes me long for my early college days.
