Magic often comes in threes. A lesson etched so deep into the fabric of Hollywood and its fairytales we’ve stopped noticing how remarkable it really is. Whether it’s three granted wishes, uttering a name three times to summon a character, or trio of significant characters the rule of three is applied with tenacity. While Kim Petra’s has certainly put a spell on fans, she’s also more than smoke and mirrors, steadily working to make herself into a household name since the 2017 release of her debut single, “I Don’t Want It At All.” Proving that she’s more than just the 2018 breakout artist of the year and a strong contender for top 2019 artist, Petras capitalizes on some of that old Hollywood magic, dazzling audiences with three singles simultaneously. Challenging the grey winter of February with the debut of her trilogy and those bubblegum pop rays of sunshine.
To keep with the Petras pizzazz, here are the top three reasons you’ll love her latest singles.
- With her sultry voice and the come hither lyrics of her single “If U think About Me,” you’ll be hard pressed to think about anything else but her. Petra’s is a hot, loveable commodity, and there’s no way you’ll be forgetting it as she belts out “time is money and I ain’t got the time to buy a new heart of mine.” It’s a catchy song, revealing the insecurities and lighthearted obsession of new love but set to a danceable ’80s-like beat. Perhaps it’s that sense of familiarity gleaned in Petras modern twist that’s simultaneously irresistible and comforting.
- Petras collaboration with Lil Aaron on Homework is a slight departure from her usual sugary fare. This is a slower paced musical experience, a coming of age ode showcasing Petras’ versatility as an artist. A throwback to the innocence of young romance, “you always let me copy your homework and I’ll never, I’ll never forget that,” the sweetly crooned lyrics will leave you smiling for days, thinking back to those lighthearted moments that meant so much. This song will have you tripping down memory lane in no time.
- The long-awaited, highly anticipated collaboration between SOPHIE and Kim Petras is finally here. “I,2,3 dayz up” is touted by fans as one of Petras best releases. This song sparkles and pops with an unbridled enthusiasm, matching Petras’ lyrics “we don’t stop, we don’t stop, we don’t stop” about the party that never ends. It’s everything you’ve wanted and come to expect from Petras, with an electrifying, captivating beat you can’t shake. This is the kind of music that inspires house parties.
