NEW ALBUM: KIM PETRAS | SLUT POP

Nobody loves a holiday release more than Kim Petras. The pop star is infamous for her Halloween projects, but she decided to be sweet this year and drop a little something for Valentine’s Day. Her new EP, "Slut Pop," is heralded as a “sex-positive” release and dropped in full tonight. Packed with gems such as “Treat Me Like A Slut, the title track “Slut Pop,” “XXX,” and “Throat Goat” — which sounds like a Slayyyter song, tbh — this new material is definitely in line with her latest single, “Coconuts,” which is, uh, not about fruit. Still, it should be clear for fans who are familiar with Petras’ very prolific release style that “Coconuts” and the single she used to kick off her new era and signing to Republic Records, “Future Starts Now,” are from her upcoming album. None of the "Slut Pop" material is part of that more official release. According to a press release, this is just a reminder of how no one should be stigmatized for being sexual. Kim Petra released music as an independent artist under her own imprint BunHead Records, between 2016 and 2020 before signing with Republic Records in 2021. Petras began recording music as a teenager, releasing her debut extended play One Piece of Tape in 2011. She independently released her debut single in 2017, "I Don't Want It at All," which went on to top several viral music charts on Spotify. The song was followed by Billboard-charting singles "Feeling of Falling" (with Cheat Codes), "Heart to Break," and "1, 2, 3 Dayz Up" (featuring Sophie).
