“I was that boy at school that decided to choreograph a dance routine instead of throw a football,” 25-year-old pop singer Adam Cola tells Billboard. “Anything that glittered and smelled good was very appealing to me. So my music is really about breaking free and being able to own the individual that I am.”
Cola is one of twelve LGBTQ artists featured on Heard Well’s latest compilation, Pride, out today (June 22). The release is a partnership with the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (or GLSEN) for Pride Month and includes artists like Love, Simon breakout star Keiynan Lonsdale, Katy Perry signee Cyn and Pentatonix offshoot Superfruit.
The first track on the compilation is synth-rock trio Muna’s “I Know A Place.” The track (and the band) made a cameo in Netflix’s new gay teen romcom Alex Strangelove.
