Leah Kate is on her way to becoming pop music’s biggest bad girl with her latest track Twinkle Twinkle Little Bitch.
Those of us who were teenagers in the naughties are absolutely thrilled that pop-punk is back with a bang. Leah Kate’s latest track is the perfectly pissed-off answer to a gal just wanting to have a yell/sing in the car.
LA native, Leah Kate is riding the success of her last single 10 Things I Hate About You and she’s given us another chance to hear her razor-sharp and super-specific lyrics in the form of an unforgettable single.
The budding hit-maker has been dropping pop/rock/punk anthems since 2018 and after a snippet of her last single went viral on TikTok, Leah went all in.
Now that Leah Kate has got our attention, she’s released Twinkle Twinkle Little Bitch along with an accompanying video and let me tell you, if you thought this song might be mildly inappropriate for kids, you’re probably not wrong.
Twinkle Twinkle Little Bitch is an awesome and angry track that is pretty much a big old middle finger to whichever ex Leah is singing to. If there even is an ex. The awesomeness of this song is that the passion and frustration feel so unmistakably feminine and empowering and it feels like you could just about aim it at anything.
The music video, which was directed by Aerin Moreno (Madison Beer, Sofi Tucker), shows Leah in some fresh drip, singing in a children’s bedroom and flipping the camera the bird, often.
While Leah has some stunning vocals thanks to her decades of dedication and training, her relatable and blunt lyrics are something that separates her music from the rest.
The words “I can’t believe that I let you come inside, my room. Yeah, you broke my heart in two,” really stood out. Leah is unapologetically telling the world who she is and telling them to be cool with it and I cannot get enough of this vibe.
At one point, the icon-in-the-making is seen reading to a bunch of teddy bears and the book she’s showing them hides a couple of clever easter eggs.
The first is a note that says: “Mozart would throw up if he heard this!” which is a nod to the man who originally wrote the chorus melody (the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star melody).
Another note in the book says: “I WISH I NEVER HEARD THIS!”
Although the notes are written with what look like Instagram handles connected, some quick research shows that they must be made up names and HOPEFULLY these aren’t real comments that Leah received. But I guess, what she’s showing is that even if they are, she doesn’t care.
Leah Kate has real do-what-you-want energy and it feels like just what we need right now.
The soon-to-be-certified pop star just recently finished up supporting Madison Beer on tour and now with another huge hit under her belt, it looks like 2022 is the year that Leah Kate really breaks out.
Twinkle Twinkle Little Bitch is out now.
