Kim Petras has released her brand new single “Malibu,” a bright blast of pure pop. PRESS HERE to listen to “Malibu,” a glittering, sun-kissed bop with instrumental elements and raw vocals, inspired by the silver screen, Baywatch fantasy of Malibu.
“‘Malibu’ is a return to color, the feeling of being in love, and the escapism pop that I love the most,” says Kim. “After Clarity, I had cried all my tears and moved on, so this is a reflection of how I’ve been feeling. I just want “Malibu” to be a fizzy, refreshing drink that comes to you during this quarantine and makes you forget all your anxieties. I hope this can be a little vitamin shot that brightens your day.”
