Elle King is the singer whose hit single, "Playing for Keeps," has been chosen as the theme song for VH1's promising new hit show, Mob Wives Chicago. I had never heard the entire version before now. I have to admit I am as connected to the Mob Wives "Big Big Bang" theme as Pavolv's dogs were to the dinner bell. I may not salivate anytime I hear a few notes of that song, but scenes from Mob Wives race through my mind in an instant. I would say that this song has promise, and once we have a few episodes of the Chicago show under our belts, I'm sure it will have the same kind of "magic" as the original theme song.
Elle King has been signed to record with RCA records. She is currently working on her debut album. She was born in 1989 and is the daughter of Rob Schnieder and London King. She was born in Ohio and raised in Brooklyn. If you follow her on her facebook page you can find out where she will be appearing in NYC and go see her sing. She has other tracks online that you may want to listen to as well. She kind of reminds me of Adele. What do you think of this theme song?
