Her name is Kim Petras, but you should’ve known that already. With the release of her new single, ‘brrr,’ Petras reminds us why we fell in love with her in the first place. With her breathtaking vocals, a sick beat, and lyrics that’ll make you quiver, she is back and better than ever. The single was produced by ILYA, who also worked with Kim on ‘If Jesus Was A Rockstar,’ as well as the incredible Max Martin and Omar Fedi. The track brings us back to what pop music really is, and of course she brought it hard.
While Kim is gearing up to release her next studio album, she’s busy breaking records and keeping booked and busy. The pop icon was also nominated for her first ever Grammy on her track with Sam Smith, ‘Unholy.’ Kim, who is the first openly transgender woman nominated for a Grammy award, spoke with iHeart Radio on the exciting news. “It’s just such a thing that I didn’t think would happen.”
“Growing up I was definitely like, ‘I wonder if I can do a lot of the things that my idols do… because I’m trans. Is that gonna limit me from how far I can go?’ That stuff definetly ran through my head so it’s just cool to have broken that little ceiling that was there before and now it’s open,” she says.
Kim hit up the Late Night Show with Seth Meyers and crushed her debut performance of ‘brrr,’ which you can watch now below. Be sure to get the new single and keep up with Kim for the latest updates on her new album and more coming soon.
