Per the official press release –
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.”
Following break-up banger “Reminds Me,” “Malibu” is the next in Kim’s string of undeniable singles which have racked up more than 320 million global streams, including “Icy,” “Heart to Break,” “Sweet Spot,” “Close Your Eyes,” “Broken,” “Hillside Boys,” and “I Don’t Want It At All,” and follows her critically-acclaimed, 12-track project Clarity which dominated Spotify‘s “New Music Friday” and Apple Music‘s “Best of The Week” for ten consecutive weeks.
