Had this song stuck in my head for DAYS after watching the episode. Finally had forgotten about it when I see it pop up on YouTube and now I’m stuck playing it on repeat 😭

All these featured artists are making my eyes do the anime-shine thing, gosh. AND she’s sending us to 2099 so we can escape this hellscape of a present. I’m ready.

Kosovo/Albania's summer BOP.

Era Istrefi had so much potential. Mismanaged mess. She's more interesting tha Ava Max, Rita Ora and Bebe Rexhe combined.
Dua Lipa still remains the Kosovar Queen though.

Oddly enough all the other girls have more charisma than Dua. I do like Dua music more than the others tho

Stereogum has a weekly column where they discuss pop music, and this week they focused on Kim Petras. It's a bit of a review of her new album and a small think piece on her work with Dr. Luke.
In a thoughtful essay for Pitchfork last year titled “What Does It Mean To Be An Apolitical Trans Pop Star?” trans writer KC Clements reckoned with the complexities of Petras’ situation. Clements struggled with the way Petras has distanced herself from the trans community, opting not to speak out on trans issues and telling the New York Times, “I don’t care about being the first transgender teen idol at all.” As a cisgender person it’s not really my place to debate Petras’ approach to those situations. But we all must make our own calculations about how to process music by people accused of misconduct, which brings us to the other aspect of Petras’ career that has raised concerns: her ongoing partnership with Dr. Luke.
...
What do you do with a song like that when one of its key architects has been accused of consistently villainous behavior? If you are Petras, you wave off the allegations. “I would like my fans to know that I wouldn’t work with somebody I believe to be an abuser of women, definitely not,” she told NME last year, before sharing a more nuanced statement that acknowledged other people have not shared her positive experience with Dr. Luke. Ultimately the criticism Petras has faced has not dissuaded her from working with Gottwald — her debut full-length project Clarity is out tomorrow, and once again every song is a Dr. Luke production.
Clarity unquestionably will hit the spot for pop fans seeking that next rush. Less clear is how to engage with it given the accusations swirling around its central producer. How, when, and why to separate the art from the artist: These are questions that haunt every conscientious music fan, and they will probably dog Petras for as long as she continues to work with Dr. Luke. Their arrangement is a hypermodern devil’s bargain: Petras gets top-notch pop songs out of it, but in doing so, she is likely hurting, offending, and ultimately alienating a sizable chunk of the listeners who’d appreciate them.

The trans thing was a long time ago, in the past year or so she has been much more vocal about being a trans pop star. Just go look at her twitter.

No defence for dr puke though!
