She’s tiny, she’s toony, and she’s a little loony—That Poppy is your new favorite pop star-in-the-making. And today, the social media sensation premieres her sparkling new single, “Everybody Wants To Be Poppy,” right here on LADYGUNN. Inspired by things like J-pop and Pop Rocks—the candy, not the genre—the track is a colorful explosion of fizzy bubblegum pop with an attitude, all zipping synths, slappy bass, and cheerleader chants. It’s candy-coated punk rock for the pop crowd, and it’s fun as hell.
“Not enough people are writing songs about independence and thinking for themselves,” Poppy declares about the song, and we couldn’t agree more. The Nashville-bred artist is certainly one of a kind. Don’t you wanna be Poppy?
