Lourdes Leon is following in her mom Madonna‘s footsteps by making new music under a single name.
On Wednesday, the 25-year-old dropped her debut single, “Lock&Key,” under the moniker Lolahol. The hypnotic club banger was released by instrumentalist and composer Eartheater‘s music label, Chemical X Records.
“Why can’t I simply lock right into a Polly Pocket? / It may all be crystal clear / Maintain a photograph of you in my locket,” Leon — generally known as Lola to her buddies — sings on the observe.
“Addicted to the comfort, yeah, yeah / Till the comforter gets too hot, too hot, too hot to sleep / I’m tossing and tearing, yeah, yeah.”
Directed by Eartheater, choreographed by Leon and set in New York Metropolis, the music video for the track sees the singer strolling a canine on a sequence, hanging out of the window of a automobile and cuddling with a man in a graveyard earlier than rising from a large locket on the seaside.
“I need a breeze / Whisk me away,” she sings within the refrain in a breathy tone. “I need to breathe / Nothing to say.”
It’s unclear if the title of the observe is a reference to the Madonna hit “Open Your Heart,” which repeats the lyrics, “I hold the lock, and you hold the key” — but it surely’s in all probability only a coincidence.
Leon was born in October 1996 to pop musician Madonna and actor Carlos Leon. She is the eldest of Madonna’s six youngsters and initially entered the leisure trade as a mannequin.
In a dialog with actor Debi Mazar for Interview Journal final 12 months, Leon shared that she doesn’t “care about” music regardless of her capability to sing, including that “maybe it’s too close to home.”
“I don’t have a specific goal. I probably should,” Leon advised Mazar in October.
“Financially, modeling is a smart decision. I enjoy being very hands on with the campaigns I do, so that I’m not just modeling, per se. I dance, I have a very specific sense of style, and I’m interested in aesthetics, so I like to incorporate all those parts of myself into my projects.”
