In a move that is sure to delight their respective fanbases, Drag Race UK superstar Tia Kofi teams up with K-Pop's first openly gay artist MRSHLL for a queer pop collaboration that breaks down barriers.
'Heart Beating' is a stunning electro pop duet, bringing together two of 2022's most exciting LGBTQ+ artists. The driving 80's influenced slow banger is about the divisive initial stages of falling in love - produced and co-written by MRSHLL, Simon Jones, and Judy Kim.
Riding on the heels of Get Better', the first single off of Tia's highly anticipated upcoming sophomore EP that was exclusively released via Notion Magazine, playlisted by Gaydio, and featured across BBC Radio, Channel 5 News, Gay Times, Celeb Mix and EQ Music; 'Heart Beating' is the LGBTQ+ musical team-up we always needed.
Tia's debut EP 'Part 1: The Damage' hit No.1 on the iTunes pop chart and No.3 on the iTunes main chart and has been streamed over 1.3 million times on Spotify. The EP featured 4 singles. ‘Outside In’, written by Little Boots and Tom Aspaul, was premiered on both Radio 2’s Zoe Ball breakfast show and has amassed over a million streams since, entering the Top 30 on iTunes. Both ‘Outside In’ and ‘Look What You’ve Done’ have been Top 3 hits on the Official Music Week Commercial Pop Chart, whilst 'I Want It All' went Top 10 in November of last year.
Tia is the BBC's presenter of digital content for the Eurovision Song Contest again this year. She also recently starred in both MTV's Celebrity Ex in the City and the BBC's Eating With My Ex, alongside presenting for the Winter Olympics for BBC Sport. She also starred in Attitude Magazine's Spotify Wrapped campaign and several campaigns for L'Oreal.
Seoul-based and Southern California-raised, MRSHLL aka Marshall Bang made waves as the first openly gay artist in K-Pop, debuting in 2017 on Korean national television (Show Me The Money, Season 6) and reaching the Top 40 charts for co-writing and featuring on "T.O (Again)". Since then, MRSHLL has been in campaigns for Instagram, Instax, and Converse, penned songs for other artists including co-writing K-Pop boy band VeriVery's latest title record "Undercover" and featured on such media outlets as Billboard, Forbes, Paper Magazine, NBC, Los40, and Buzzfeed. Spanning a wide variety of genres - R&B, deep house, pop, disco - MRSHLL not only has performed all over the world including Spain, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines, but recently joined boutique label FeelGhood Music (home to rising star BIBI and Korean music legends Drunken Tiger JK and Yoonmirae) as creative director. Known for his electrifying live shows in the underground club scene, his charismatic persona, and the musical message of love and acceptance, MRSHLL will continue to expand and transcend the prolific entity he is.
