Remember summer fun? Kim Petras is bringing it back in style with her delightful pop confection “Malibu.” She just dropped a sexy Baywatch-inspired animation to go with the tune:
Kim told Callie Ahlgrim from Insider:
Songs like ‘Malibu’ are the reason I make music and why I started writing songs — to get to that point where I can make big, escapist pop records that just make you happy and make you want to dance.
She added of the city that inspired the song:
It seemed like this magical place. I just knew it from TV and movies, like ‘Baywatch.’ Those super cheesy versions of Malibu, which it’s actually not like. I got there and I was like, ‘This is actually quite boring. It’s just a bunch of rich people and that’s it.’ And so I wanted to write a song about the fantasy of it, and link that up with a feeling of love.
