After poptastic dance-floor ready anthem ‘Radioactive’ failed to set the charts alight, kooky Marina & The Diamonds went straight back to the drawing board to make sure enough hype was built for her upcoming concept album Electra Heart. The result? Dr Luke-produced banger ‘Primadonna’ that combines Britney style dirty synth riffs with Marina’s unique vocals and introspective lyrics like “Beauty queen of the silver screen, I’m living life like I’m in a dream, I know I’ve got a big ego”. Is it the best song she’s ever recorded? Definitely not. Is it a relentless tune with great production and an insanely catchy chorus? Yes it is.
Check out the Casper Balslev directed video for ‘Primadonna’ below. The less said about that wig, the better.
