Kim Petras Releases ‘Brr’ Single: Listen

Celebrating her biggest year in 2022, Kim Petras released the electrifying Slut Pop EP and become the first openly trans artist to have a #1 single in large part due to her “Unholy.”  collaboration with Sam Smith. Now, she’s starting 2023 off on an icy note with the new single “Brr.”

Produced by ILYA, who worked with Petras’ on “If Jesus Was a Rockstar” alongside Max Martin and Omar Fedi, “Brr” features a tough, industrial-pop rhythm similar in style to Kim’s late friend and collaborator Sophie

Her first full-length project with Republic Records, Petras’ debut LP follows 2019’s Halloween-centric mixtape Turn Off the Lights, which she self-released on her own BunHead label. And about her career, Petras told Billboard “I know for the fans, it was very hard to see a whole album go away — for me, too.” “That original album got me through the pandemic. But I also realized in that process that I was just doing what I always do; I was writing escapist pop songs about wanting to get away from everything. It was, once again, ‘The world is ending, let’s party.’ I love that, but I’m at a different place now.” “It’s more important for me to talk about the things that are actually meaningful to me in real life. I’ve always been very guarded about letting people in, where I have the stage persona that’s kind of a b—h who gets whatever she wants. It’s a very different thing for me, and it’s vulnerable and strange to open up like this.”
