Your Majesty Oriana Begins Her Reign With EP, QUEEN.
Your Majesty Oriana may not be a household name yet, but they are making a theatrical splash in the pop music world with QUEEN available Sept 7th, 2019. QUEEN is a Dance-Pop EP, that combines dramatic elements, artistic themes, and of course, infectious pop-like hooks. Oriana dives into the mind of what it means to be gender- nonconforming in the modern world. “I chose to call the record, QUEEN, because looking through history, queens had to be inherently androgynous in their essence to survive,” says Your Majesty Oriana. “Unfortunately, women in power were, and still are in many places, seen as incapable of ruling. In order to prove the world wrong, they had to adopt what- are-seen-as masculine traits to be successful in their reign.”
QUEEN is a four-song EP where each song represents a queen who rules over the human heart. We have the Queen of Desire, Queen of Pain, Queen of Power, and Queen of Love. The four songs examine the four queens and which one rules over you. For example, the latest song release, Gloriana, is the Queen of Power’s anthem. A song that embraces your own individual strength, and the ability to not only move mountains, but to turn them into dust. Another example is the next song release on July 29th, Mannequin in the Mirror. Mannequin in the Mirror is the song for the Queen of Desire. As it follows the lyrical story of the aggressor and victim of identity theft, as the aggressor does everything they can to survive and rise to the top.

QUEEN was written solely by Your Majesty Oriana and produced/engineered by LA’s Tayanti. “I hope when you listen to QUEEN, that you feel powerful. I want you to hear this record and think ‘I can do anything, and live the life I want.’” Oriana adds, “I’m not actually royalty, But does that look like it’s stopping me?”
