Royal & the Serpent Performs “JUNKIE” Live At idobi Studios

From having one of the most viral TikTok songs in the world to supporting Fall Out Boy on tour, it is impossible not to notice that Royal & the Serpent is on her way to becoming one of the biggest artists in alternative music. Taking a unique approach to releasing music and conceptual visuals, the grungy alt-pop star is releasing double-sided singles all summer long. Earlier this year, Royal dropped RAT TRAP 1: the blueprint that included tracks, “ONE NATION UNDERDOGS” and “ASTROTURF.“ In both songs she focused heavily on self-love and individuality. The second installment brought us  RAT TRAP 2: the burn and brand new tracks, “JUNKIE” and “SLUG.” These two follow a narrative of heartbreak and toxic love.

Royal & the Serpent stopped into the idobi studio to perform an exclusive stripped-back version of “JUNKIE.” Having a typically erratic and over-the-top stage presence, it is captivating to witness her deliver a somber, calculated, and emotional rendition of the song. Watch Royal & the Serpent win you over if you aren’t already.
