Kim Petras & Nicki Minaj’s “Alone” Video is Out Now
International pop star Kim Petras has released the music video (watch below) for her new single “Alone” (with Nicki Minaj).
The steamy club banger features diamond-selling hip-hop icon, and one of the Grammy-winning star's biggest inspirations, Nicki Minaj. The music video sees the duo embodying a man’s ultimate fantasies to figure out how to finally get him all alone while making references to multiple club classics such as Eric Prydz’s “Call on Me”, Alex Gaudino’s “Destination Calabria”, and Fedde Le Grand’s “Put Your Hands Up For Detroit”.
“Alone” (with Nicki Minaj), which samples Alice Deejay’s Eurodance megahit “Better Off Alone”, has racked up millions of streams and was featured on top playlists across Apple, Spotify, Amazon, and more.
The critically-acclaimed songwriter also attended this year’s Met Gala as a guest of Marc Jacobs, paying homage to Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel era with a look that incorporated Chanel’s Camellia flower and their classic black and white color palette, with a Chanel-inspired diamanté spin on Marc’s classic kiki boot.
Petras is also gearing up for festival appearances at Governor’s Ball in New York City this June, Osheaga in Montreal this August, Life is Beautiful in Las Vegas and The Town in São Paulo, Brazil this September. She will also be performing at Hard Rock Live in Miami, Florida on 19 May, presented by Sports Illustrated to celebrate the release of their annual swimsuit issue.
Petras is continuing a milestone year that began with her and Sam Smith’s LGBTQ history-making Grammy win for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their Number 1 global, platinum smash hit “Unholy” – which just surpassed one billion streams. The track, which Petras co-wrote and performed with Sam on the Grammy Awards, Saturday Night Live, and the BRIT Awards, quickly became one of 2022’s top pop debuts. Petras also released her icy, beat-heavy bop “brrr”, which she performed on Late Night With Seth Meyers and at Billboard’s Women In Music event where she was honored with the Chartbreaker Award.
