    I defy any pop lover to listen to this song and not come out the other side with a smile on your face. All of her singles so far have been bops. Worked with Charli XCX on her last release... expecting big things from her.

    I think it's important to note that she works with Dr. Luke. Here's a quote from her that @iCarly Rae Jepsen posted in the Charli thread.

    "As I know him, he’s been really great and supportive to me and I’ve been learning a lot from him," Petras said. "He’s been a really nice person and I wasn’t there when that whole thing [with Kesha] went down, but from my experience he’s a great guy and I’ve been having a good time working with him."

    When asked if she'll continue to work with Luke, Petras doubles down. "I’m always working with other collaborators," she says. "I’m always working with whomever the hell I want to work with. But it’s been really great working with him and I’ve been really happy with how it all came out."

    Yep, as @brandon_260 mentions... yesterday I found all of her music and was enamored, then learned that Dr Luke co-wrote every single one of them and basically is her mentor.... sigh

    I had no idea she was trans until right now. Such a shame she works with Dr. Luke.

    Honestly can't understand how she still works with Dr Luke with everything she stands for and the company she keeps, her statement on the whole situation isn't great either

    Welp... she's doubling-down on everything, this is not a good look

    Kim Petras Wants You To Concentrate On Her Music, Not Her Transgender Identity | HuffPost

    You also have spoken about your love for Dr. Luke, even though many other musicians have cut ties with him in light of Kesha accusing him of sexual assault. Where’s your head at with that?
    It’s ongoing litigation and I don’t want to involve myself. I respect both of them a lot. My experience [with him] has been very positive. That doesn’t mean that Kesha’s experience was positive but I’d like to stay out of it and just let the case do its thing.

    You recently told NME, “I would like my fans to know that I wouldn’t work with somebody I believe to be an abuser of women, definitely not,” which some people have interpreted as you calling Kesha a liar.
    That was just me saying I haven’t experienced any of it. That doesn’t mean she hasn’t, but I want to let their case speak for itself. Honestly, it’s not my place to say anything.

    Saying "well he doesn't abuse me so whatever" is such an uncomfortable stance to take. Really put a damper on all of her music for me.
