Saturday Night (Natalia Kills song)

“Saturday Night” is a song recorded by English singer-songwriter Natalia Kills for her second studio album, Trouble (2013). It was exclusively released to online media retailers as the album’s second single on 28 June 2013, following the release of the promotional single “Controversy” and the album’s lead single “Problem”. Written by American record producer Jeff Bhasker and Kills, the song faces the themes of “squandered youth and disenchantment”,[1] and talks about moving on while going through a difficult time. Musically, it is a new wave-tinged, synth-based song.

Upon its release, critical response to “Saturday Night” was generally positive: contemporary music critics highlighted the lyrics’ personal content and billed it as Kills’ best song to date. “Saturday Night” was able to peak at number twenty-three at the singles chart of New Zealand, and reached the top 10 of the US Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs. Along with the single release, a music video directed by Guillaume Doubet was released in July 2013. It revolves around domestic abuse, drug addiction, and Kills’ relationship with her parents.

Trouble (Natalia Kills album)

Trouble is the second studio album by English recording artist Teddy Sinclair under the name Natalia Kills. It was released on 3 September 2013 by Cherrytree Records through will.i.am Music Group and Interscope. Recording for the album started in early 2012 and took place in Los Angeles and New York. During that time, Sinclair was accompanied by some producers, including Jeff Bhasker, who served as Trouble’s executive producer. Bhasker handled a multitude of production tasks, including production, instrumentation and songwriting.

Sinclair eschewed the sound and lyrical content of her debut album Perfectionist (2011) in favour of a heavier atmosphere, driven by strong percussion and electric guitars. The lyrics, largely co-written by Sinclair and Bhasker, explore the former’s problematic childhood and adolescence. Accompanying the album, its cover art was designed by Sinclair and symbolizes the album’s main themes. Upon release, music critics commended the album’s cohesion, and perceived an evolution in Sinclair’ songwriting.

The album was announced with the release of a music video for “Controversy” in September 2012. Three singles were commissioned from Trouble, accompanied by respective music videos—”Problem” and “Saturday Night” preceded the album’s release; later, a remix of the album’s title track served as its third single. The record failed to chart internationally with the exception of the US Billboard 200, where it peaked at number 70.

Mirrors (Natalia Kills song)

“Mirrors” is a song by the English recording artist Natalia Kills from her debut studio album, Perfectionist (2011). It was released by Cherrytree Records on 10 August 2010 as the lead single from the album. The track was written and produced by Akon, Giorgio Tuinfort and Martin “Cherry Cherry Boom Boom” Kierszenbaum, with additional writing from Kills. Described as a “disco pop” song, “Mirrors” contains references to various themes including sexual sadomasochism and arrogance.

Critical response to “Mirrors” was generally positive—most music critics denoted it as a standout from Perfectionist. The track received chart success in some countries of Europe, reaching the top ten of Austria, Germany, and Poland. On the US Hot Dance Club Songs, it peaked at number three, whereas in the United Kingdom, it failed to reach the top 100. The music video for “Mirrors” was directed by Guillaume Doubet, and follows Kills exploring the concepts of vanity, control and sex after being mysteriously dragged into a mirror. She further promoted the song with live performances on the 2011 Life Ball and on the German programme Schlag den Raab.

Perfectionist (album)

Perfectionist is the debut studio album by English singer Teddy Sinclair under the name Natalia Kills. It was released on 1 April 2011 through will.i.am Music Group, Cherrytree Records, KonLive and Interscope. Despite having started out as an actress, Sinclair later became a rap artist and released a single in 2005; however, her label went bankrupt. Songwriting remained her principal activity until 2008, when she was signed by will.i.am and started recording the album.

Sinclair worked with musicians including Fernando Garibay, Jeff Bhasker, and Martin Kierszenbaum, and created a concept album based on perfectionism. Its lyrical content contains references to love, sex, and money, complemented by a sonority rooted in synthpop and dance-pop. Perfectionist received mixed reviews from music critics, who asserted that the singer’s visual projects were superior to her music. Obtaining top 50 positions in some European countries, the album performed moderately on international record charts. In the United Kingdom and United States, the set attained chiefly low positions; in the latter, its sales as of September 2013 were of 14,000 copies.

The album spawned three singles—”Mirrors”, “Wonderland” and “Free”—which were generally successful in Europe and were accompanied by music videos. “Mirrors” managed to peak within the top 5 of the US Hot Dance Club Songs. In association with Guillaume Doubet, Kills produced a web series titled Love, Kills xx in order to promote the album, based on her secret thoughts and desires. Comprising 10 episodes, it features Sinclair seeking revenge and hurting men.

Free (Natalia Kills song)

“Free” is a song by English recording artist Natalia Kills from her debut studio album, Perfectionist. Written by Kills, Jeff Bhasker, Kid Cudi and No I.D., produced by Bhasker.

The song was released as the second single in the UK on 11 September 2011.

For the single version, will.i.am provided an opening verse and bridge. The single version was the official version on the US release of the album, the UK track listing to be announced. “Free” was released as Kills’ second single in the United Kingdom on 11 September 2011, as an iTunes EP featuring both versions with and without will.i.am including 2 remixes, and a new magazine-style artwork. Polydor Records, who represent Kills in the UK, decided against releasing Wonderland as a single in th UK and have instead chosen to promote the album Perfectionist by releasing “Free” a week before the album’s release. “Free” is based around a riff sample taken from Kate Bush’s “Wuthering Heights”.
