Kim Petras has just released a star-studded, crowd-sourced video for her latest single “Malibu,” which features some special celebrity friends alongside Kim’s most spirited fans. Kim’s call for fans to submit beach-y clips of themselves singing and dancing to “Malibu” during quarantine ended up with Demi Lovato, Paris Hilton, Charli XCX, Jonathan Van Ness, Loren Gray, Madelaine Petsch, Jessie J, and many more all sending in videos to take part.
“Malibu” is a glittering, sun-kissed bop with instrumental elements and raw vocals, inspired by the silver screen, Baywatch fantasy of Malibu. Released on Thursday, the track is the next in Kim’s unstoppable string of singles including “Icy,” “Heart to Break,” “Sweet Spot,” “Close Your Eyes,” “Broken,” “Hillside Boys,” and “I Don’t Want It At All.”
Fast-rising international pop sensation Kim Petras has become one of music’s most buzzed-about artists. She has racked up more than 320 million global streams, and her critically acclaimed debut full-length project Clarity dominated Spotify’s “New Music Friday” and Apple Music’s “Best of The Week” playlists for 10 consecutive weeks with its acclaimed singles, including glacial hit “Icy”.
Selling her first ticket in 2019, Kim sold out her first-ever headline tour last summer in minutes during presale, and her international The Clarity Tour sold out The Shrine in LA and two back to back nights at Avant Gardner in NYC. Kim’s undeniable voice and imaginative artistry have skyrocketed her to international recognition and earned her major mainstream media acclaim from various media outlets.
First breaking out with her #1 Spotify Global Viral 50 bop “I Don’t Want It At All,” Kim launched into Top 40 radio with her pop hit “Heart to Break,” opened for Troye Sivan’s nationwide Bloom Tour last year, revived and redefined Halloween music with her spooky project TURN OFF THE LIGHT, collaborated with Charli XCX, Cheat Codes, MAX, SOPHIE, Lil Aaron, and more, appeared on “How It’s Done” from the Ariana-Grande-produced Charlie’s Angels soundtrack, and has been featured on multiple billboards in New York, London, and Los Angeles as a Spotify RISE artist.
