There is no question that Kim Petras is a pop star like no other, and now with the announcement of a collaboration with K-pop group K/DA, she is set to take her artistry to the next level. Petras is set to join Madison Beer and Evelynn on the track Villain, a single from the hot anticipated debut EP ‘ALL OUT’ from K/DA. The EP boasts a winning line-up of contributors that include TWICE,(G)I-DLE, Wolftyla, Bea Miller, and more.
Kim’s Halloween mixtape release Turn Off The Light left her fans with a sppoky sonic vibe that had them wanting more and ‘Villain’ is just the latest in a series of collaborations for the performer. Teaming up with Kygo for the single Broken Glass, and then releasing the star-filled Malibu (At Home Edition) fan video that received love from Britney Spears, she performed it on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The fan-favorite quarantine hit features some special celebrity guest stars, including Demi Lovato, Paris Hilton, Jonathan Van Ness, Charli XCX, Loren Gray, Madelaine Petsch, Jessie J, Pabllo Vittar, Aquaria, Todrick Hall, Nikita Dragun, Aly & AJ, Dorian Electra, Slayyyter, Brittany Broksi, Teddy Quinlivan, Bowen Yang, and many more.
Kim Petras is one of the industry’s most buzzed-about artists, currently racking up more than 400 million global streams, in part due to her debut full-length project Clarity that dominated the new Music Friday on Spotify and Apple Music’s Best of the Week playlists for 10 consecutive weeks. Her icy pop single Icy landed her on Good Morning America as part of her national debut and she followed up that feat in 2019 with a headlining sold-out tour last summer. Her international The Clarity Tour sold out at The Shrine in Los Angeles and at Avant Gardner in NYC on back to back nights.
Her first #1 Spotify Global Viral 50 bop I Don’t Want It At All broke her to a larger market, followed by the pop hit Heart to Break that launched her to Top 40 radio listeners. Opening for singer Troye Sivan on the Bloom Tour last year, Petras redefined and revived Halloween music in the Turn Off The Light project that featured collaborations with Charli XCX, Cheat Codes, MAX, Sophie, Lil Aaron and more. Next, she was featured on the Ariana Grande produced single How It’s Done for the Charlie’s Angeles soundtrack, a single that was featured on multiple billboards in New York, London, and Los Angeles as one of Spotify’s RISE artists.
