Empress Of, born Lorely Rodriguez, speaks and sings of love so candidly you can’t help but feel a connection. The Latinx singer-songwriter and producer released her phenomenal indie pop album Us on Oct. 2018, which features songwriting and soundscapes by Dev Hynes, DJDS, and more.
On the sixth episode of What’s Love?, Empress Of invites us on a tour of Barnsdall Art Park, her favorite place in her hometown of Los Angeles, and discusses the importance of communication and the gut instinct of saying “I love you” first.
