Meet Sophie - an artist who makes pop music for the end of the world. I have to admit that description even though a few words got my attention and I was curious what that sounds like. The track is her very first release and gets the listener from the very get-go not only because of the groovy beat but her ability to story-tell through her lyrics.

The story of the track is quite compelling and I respect Sophie for pulling through all of this.

I wrote this song to a Playboi Carti type beat I ripped off YouTube last summer while going through a phase where I obsessively took nudes and posted them online. Months after taking my pictures down, I found them all over the internet--some had been scraped by porn bot sites, some downloaded and then disseminated by people. I was so ashamed of myself I couldn't listen to the demo. That's how I knew it had to be the lead single of the four I'm releasing this summer. I've partnered with the March Against Revenge Porn to share my story--I am the interviewee of their next podcast episode, which will be released with the single and music video next Friday. There is life beyond shame! That's what this song has come to mean for me.
