Another Bop! Kim Petras & Lil Aaron Team Up For “Faded”
Kim Petras is one of the breakout stars of 2017 courtesy of viral hit “I Don’t Want It At All” and a string of impressive buzz tracks including “Hillside Boys” and “Slow It Down.” The 25-year-old closes out 2017 with yet another bop. She teams up with songwriter/rapper Lil Aaron for “Faded,” which, as the title suggests, is an ode to getting high. “I’m faded out my mind, faded every night,” the German diva declares. “I can touch the sky, I be too faded to drive.”
There’s a reason for Kim’s penchant for oblivion, however. Fake fucks. “They wanna squeeze you when you’re warm, when it’s cold they ain’t around,” she laments on the pre-chorus. “They crowd around you when you up, then disappear when you get stuck.” Her green-haired collaborator expresses a similar sentiment in his verse. “I stay faded only smoking A-graded,” he boasts. “Everybody fake as fuck so I been self medicatin’.” Kim already has enough tracks for a killer EP, so it will be interesting to see what 2018 brings.
