People say that you should never work with your loved ones. Thank God Quinn Wilson and her girlfriend of two years, King Princess, did though! Quinn, who is Lizzo’s creative director, a filmmaker and responsible for the stunning promo visuals for RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 2, joined forces with her honey to direct the incredibly sexy music video for “PAIN”. Calling on the likes of Stella Maxwell and Kilo Kish to whip and sit on KP, a year’s worth of lockdown brainstorming was brought to life in a video resembling the physical manifestation of heartbreak.

The couple — who have been isolating together throughout the pandemic — recently welcomed a sweet dog child called Raz into their lives. She is immensely proud of both of her parents. Obsessed with their pup and desperate for a quality soundtrack to help us make it through Valentine’s Day weekend, we asked KP and Quinn to make us a playlist.

So what’s their selection all about? “It’s about the love we have for each other and ourselves,” they say. “Our relationship in all of its complexities. It's definitely not a perfect relationship. We piss each other off, we kiss and makeup, then piss each other off again. But we love each other, and I think our partnership is really special.”

Press play on a soundtrack that goes from sexy to romantic to emotionally raw (featuring Britney, Cardi B, SOPHIE and every version of “A Case of You” ever) and read on to discover how Quinn and KP met, their first impressions of each other and what they believe is the greatest love song of all time.

So, tell us, how did you two meet?
Q: Unsurprisingly, Mikaela slid into my DM's.

Do you remember your very first impressions of each other?
KP: My first impression of Quinn was that she was way too cool for me.
Q: My first impression of KP was that she was funny and a cutie, but I could tell right away that she had a lil thing for me.  

What does a typical day of lockdown look like in the Princess-Wilson household?
Q: KP plays her video games, and I work on becoming a famous director.

How, if at all, will you celebrate Valentine's Day this weekend?
KP + Q: Every day is Valentine’s Day.

In your opinion, what is the greatest love song of all time?
KP: “Yummy” by Justin Bieber… just kidding, somewhere between “I, Know” by Fiona Apple and “You and I” by Betty Davis.

Q: “A Case of You” by Joni Mitchell. The original and the one covered by Prince, and then the one covered by James Blake too.

And the sexiest song ever?
KP + Q: “Up” by Cardi B.

Who is your favourite fictional couple?
KP + Q: Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill

What's the most romantic thing you've ever done for each other?
KP: Writing some of my recent music about Quinn.
Q: Loving her every day for the past two years.

Finally, please tell us everything we ought to know about Raz.
KP + Q: She has healing powers.
