This #WCW we are spotlighting German pop queen, Kim Petras! If you haven’t heard of her yet, get ready to be blown away by her story. Before attracting hype with her music, Kim made headlines for being the youngest person to undergo gender reassignment surgery. She was 16 at the time although she began the transition process at only 12.
These days Kim Petras is a total icon in the transgender community. A symbol of empowerment, she hopes her pop stardom speaks to other trans people and helps them through their transition. Her growing success as an artist is huge inspiration and she is only just scratching the surface.
Her first single “I Don’t Want It At All” came out late last year. With almost 5.5 million plays on Spotify it is the perfect pop song. The music video is just as shiny, introducing us to the world of Kim Petras, it is all about the things she loves. It even features a cameo from none other than Paris Hilton!
Since her debut, Kim has backed it up with 4 more poppin’ singles. She also features on Charli XCX’s ‘Unlock It’ taken from massive POP 2 EP. It is predicted that in 2018 Kim Petras will dominate the pop charts and we are so here for that!
We can’t not wait to see what Kim Petras has in store for us next. In the meantime, please do yourself a favour and check out the video for ‘I Don’t Want It At All’ below.
