Kim Petras has wanted to become a pop star for the last 17 years -- from the time she was just 8 years old and lip syncing around her bedroom. Now, in 2018, she's well on her way.
Kim recently performed some of her new music on the Honda Stage at iHeartRadio HQ in New York City. The budding pop star performed songs like "Hillside Boys" and "Heart To Break" among others.
The Honda Stage platform celebrates determined, breakout artists, much like Kim. Last year, Kim released her debut single "I Don't Want It All," as well as appeared on Charli XCX's most recent mixtape Pop 2 on "Unlock It" (which also features Jay Park). This year, she's shared a few more songs with fans, including "Faded," "Heart To Break" (for Valentine's Day), and is ready to release even more in the rest of 2018, as she's been working with producers including Aaron Joseph and Dr. Luke.
In fact, during a recent interview with iHeartRadio, Kim explains of meeting Charli, "I met Charli XCX at the SOPHIE show, I think it was at the end of last year. SOPHIE is an incredible artist and we just like ran into each other, went to the same party afterwards, and then she texted me the next day and was like, 'Hey, I have this song, do you want to jump on it?' I went into the studio the next day, did the verse, sent it to her. She was like, 'I love it and done.' My favorite memory with [Charli] is I performed at her Pop 2 Show in New York, which was amazing, and it was so much fun. We sang 'Unlock It' together, and then we sang 'I Don't Want It At All' together, and we both just like strut around the stage, and did the cat walk thing onstage, and harmonized. It was such a cute moment. I'm obsessed with her."
