Kim Petras is an international pop star with a plan of inclusivity, who has a long track record of successful and banging gay-themed music. This small-town German girl has had massive success with her breakout single “I Don’t Want It All.” It shot to number one on Spotify’s global top 50. Her follow up single “Heart to Break” shot to the top 40 on music charts. Her streak of singles didn’t stop there, and she appeared on Good Morning America to promote her full-length project Clarity, which had a streak of domination on Spotify’s “New Music Friday” and Apple Music’s for ten weeks.
The album’s hit single “Icy” was frozen in time at the top of her streak. She followed up with her next single, Malibu, which earned her a place on Jimmy Kimmel Live! During the late-night debut of the single’s video, she featured her fans and many of her celebrity friends. The video boasted a list of celebrities like Demi Lovato, Paris Hilton, and Charli CXX. What a lineup of fabulous queens! Her Halloween mixtape “Turn Off the Light” and is hauntingly good. It made an excellent addition to her already lit lineup.
She heavily influenced her new album with synthetic music and created a sparkling dancefloor 80’s style banger with infusions of European house music. Rolling stone described it as “Daft punk remixes of Dua Lipa” that promises a single sure to be an earworm for days after you first hear it.
A future without new music from Kim Petras is not something we would look forward to! “Future Starts Now” means we don’t have to. The latest single from the trans-identifying pop star is called “Future Starts Now” and will be the lead single from her album, which is titled the same as the lead single. She wrote the album at peak lockdown and used it to break free from the constraints of quarantine. The first single from the album will kick off what is hopefully a better year to come. We all need a banger like this after a worldwide pandemic and global quarantine!
Petras is working hard on networking to make the new single the debut hit we have been looking forward to without knowing.
Petras recently appeared on the cover of Glamour in all her beautiful glory. She sported all the colors of the rainbow and served nails for days! Petras also teamed up with Adam Lambert for a surprise performance at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Here they kicked off pride month by performing the single “Malibu” and Queen’s iconic song “I want to break free.” The video is iconic because Freddie Mercury wore a dress to challenge society’s gender roles placed on us.
Petras has been on a roll recently, having teamed up with the likes of Study Killers for a remix of their hit single “Jenny (I Wanna Ruin Our Friendship)”. She’s got her hands in the TikTok cookie jar too! She’s teaming up to work on a remix of “SugarCrash!” Last year she took her initiative to continue to serve us bops that make us want to shake it out all night on a vibrantly lit and well-packed dance floor. She worked alongside Madison Beer and the global superstar K/DA to collaborate on their fan-favorite “Villain” and “Broken Glass”.
Petras is breaking all kinds of molds, and her newest single will likely shatter the internet for at least the coming weeks after the initial release. The album will be fire and has the potential to be the post lockdown bop we all need! You can check it out now on YouTube with the lyric video.
