Rising Star: Lilyisthatyou Kicks Off 2022 With a New Brilliant Single “Purity”

The Toronto newcomer Lilyisthatyou rails against misogyny on the catchy, sex-positive anthem. “Call me a slut, call me a whore,” she declares. “It’s obvious you’re insecure, there’s no such thing as purity anymore.” 

Lilyisthatyou shares, “The purpose of this song is to reshape the language we use around young women’s bodies,” she says. “Sex has always been something others used to define me. Purity is not how many people you have slept with, sex should not make you feel weak or less than. I’ve realized words like ‘slut’ and ‘whore’ only have as much power as I allow them to.”

In her new single “Purity,” the artist born Lily Davies uses vibrant ‘80s-inspired synth as a canvas for her message about reclaiming her autonomy as a woman moving through the world. It’s infectious, but purposeful too.

An acronym for “Fuck Me Right Now,” Lily’s unapologetic debut single became a sensation on TikTok and then went on to amass more than 30 million Spotify streams.

She then followed up with “Party 22,” a feel-good celebration of the possibilities of a new year. “I want to create anthems people will remember from the year the world really came back to life,” Lily says. With “Purity” out now via Warner Records, the pop provocateur is well on her way to achieving that.
