FLETCHER has been on top of her game since she debuted in 2016, and she’s keeping her momentum going with her latest single! ‘girls girls girls’ reimagines Katy Perry’s 2008 hit ‘I Kissed a Girl’ in a new light, letting FLETCHER explore and celebrate her queerness with a fun dose of nostalgia. It’s the perfect track for new fans to discover her music while still getting something familiar!
I remember my mom was dropping me off at school one day in 2008 and ‘I Kissed a Girl’ came on the radio and my mom kind of gasped at the lyrics. I had this moment in my head where I was like, ‘F*ck, I think I might like girls.’ In a lot of ways that song really marked the beginning of a lifelong journey of self-exploration and coming into my queerness and learning how to express my truth in a bold and unapologetic way. ‘girls girls girls’ is the freedom and the celebration I’ve been craving my whole life, and a way for me to share my own perspective and journey while honoring a song that empowered me to embark on it in the first place.FLETCHER
As if the star power wasn’t incredible already, ‘girls girls girls’ draws from another female pop icon we adore, Taylor Swift! FLETCHER explained on an Instagram live that the “sipped her like an Old Fashioned” lyric on the chorus was inspired by a conversation they had at Taylor’s birthday party, where Taylor was drinking an Old Fashioned.
Here at THP, we love how to open FLETCHER is in her music! Her previous single ‘Healing’ is a prime example, putting the way we all felt in lockdown into a beautiful song about persevering through difficult times. It reminds us that there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel if we stay hopeful.
