Between her experimental pop sound and distinct MySpace-era aesthetic, St. Louis-based talent Slayyyter has quickly developed a cult following, with co-signs from the likes of Grimes, Charli XCX and Kim Petras. After teasing a 15-second clip of her latest single “Mine,” fans were quick to splice the bubbly chorus into a plethora of memes.
“Twitter lost its mind,” the singer tells Billboard. “I hope people show the song as much love on Valentine’s Day as they did the snippet.” The full version premieres on Billboard below.
Slayyyter first heard the song as a demo. “Robokid played it for me at a session and I fell in love with it,” she explains. “Good Intent wrote the first version I heard and I immediately felt like it was a hit. I got home [and] after putting it off for a while, I finally recorded the vocals for it in my closet ’til like 7 am.”
The singer describes the song as “a bouncy lovey-dovey house track about wanting someone really bad,” adding that “it’s the perfect soundtrack for drunken sex in the back of an Uber.”
Earlier this week, Slayyyter announced a headlining tour this June. She will hit the road with Robokid and Boy Sim.
