King of the World

Album: Roll with Me (2019)

Songfacts®:

  • This song was directly inspired by Natasha Bedingfield's young son, Solomon. She told The Sun: "It's about how we love being around people who make us feel great. I think kids do that. Their innocence gives you like a clean slate. It makes you want to be good for them."
  • Bedingfield signed a record deal on producer Linda Perry's new label We Are Hear while she was pregnant. When Solomon was four months old, she started writing the record with Perry while he was there or asleep in the next room. She recalled to Apple Music:

    "We would finish in time so Linda could put her own son to bed, and I could put mine to bed. It was a different way of making a record, because usually I would write a record in the early hours of the morning rather than around a child's schedule."
