Cali Rodi has released the single “God Save the Queen.” The Los Angeles based pop artist created the punchy track with a team consisting of producer Lindgren (Dua Lipa, BTS) and vocal producer Emily Wright (Britney Spears, Katy Perry).
The concept for “God Save The Queen” came about after Cali experienced a physical assault in broad daylight–and no one wanted to help or get involved. This visceral example of how hard it can be to be a woman, led to her writing the song.
Cali has chosen to resist the ‘sad girl narrative,’ and rather look for the positive, and then some. The result demonstrates her ability to transform her own struggles into empowering anthems.
“I wanted to create a song that gave me hope and strength because I felt powerless in the moment. It’s an understatement to say life is hard these days. but that doesn’t mean we can’t still have a little fun.”
Cali released her first single “Party Favor” in 2017, after originally being discovered in Nashville by none other than Keith Urban. The single had an impressive release for a new independent artist, being added into rotation on Radio Disney for four months as well as gaining featured spots on top Spotify and Apple Music playlists.
Now living in Los Angeles and signed to Red Bull Songs for publishing, Cali has been working on a variety of unapologetic pop songs with vocal producer Emily Wright.
