“I used to think about the way that I dressed/ Like was I pretty enough? And am I good at sex?/ I used to want to say an early goodbye/ But I’m a disco queen, I just keep staying alive/ I try to tell ’em, ‘See ya later!’/ But they don’t wanna let me go/ I blow a kiss to all the haters/ Yeah, I just wanna let ’em know/ This baby don’t cry,” a pink-haired VanderWaal mouths for the camera, wearing an oversized black varsity jacket and nude, corset-inspired top as she claps along to the track.
In the clip, the America’s Got Talent champ complements her new hair color with cerise lipstick, a single earring and a large, locket-style necklace as an unnamed pal dances along in the background.
While VanderWaal dropped her most recent EP, Letters: Vol. 1, back in Nov. 2019, she made her feature film debut earlier this year as the titular character in Disney+’s Stargirl. The singer also recorded ukulele-strewn track “Today and Tomorrow” for the movie’s soundtrack.
