From being the best-kept secret in the LGBTQ+ community to viral trends on Tik Tok that sparked conversations around the world, to being an internationally known crown jewel signed to Atlantic Records: Studio Killers track “Jenny (I Wanna Ruin Our Friendship)” is a gift that keeps on giving – and today it gets even better. The beloved Kim Petras has hopped the track, bringing the bouncy anthem to the next level – and in true Kim Petras fashion, it’s pure pop perfection. Listen HERE.
The song takes a surprising twist early on, with Studio Killers’ frontwoman Cherry singing to her best friend Jenny, confessing her desire to ruin their friendship and be lovers instead. From the outpouring of support around the world, it’s undeniable the impact “Jenny” has had in the LGBTQ+ community, igniting conversations about culture and inspiring fans to share their memories associated with the song. Kim Petras being a member of the community and a confident voice for so many within it (in addition to being a fan of the song!) made for a natural fit and led her to lend her powerful vocals to this new version.
“I’m super excited for this release! I loved the song when I heard it on TikTok for the first time,” said Kim. “With the LGBTQ theme in the lyrics it just made sense and I had to jump on it right away.”
“We never thought we’d be told that Jenny would go viral and have over 3 billion views on TikTok or close to 200m streams worldwide. This blows our mind” said Studio Killers. “Jenny and Cherry can’t believe they are still living their best lives with this release! We’ve been a fan of Kim’s for a while now so it only seemed fitting to add her to our SK world. We are so excited she is on this new mix and can’t wait for you all to hear it!”
Homegrown all the way, Studio Killers is an unlikely seed of pop magic comprised of architects of music and vibrant animation. The band members are iconic fictional characters who have been capturing hearts with their infectious electronic music and visual delights since 2011: femme boss and frontwoman Cherry, keytarist Goldie Foxx and DJ Dyna Mink. Their first single ‘Ode to the Bouncer’ knocked down the door and rode high in the European charts, before grabbing the no.1 airplay position in the Netherlands. Their first album was self-released globally on Studio Killers Records & rose to no.1 on the US and Canadian iTunes dance charts. Without major label backing, the album reached an impressive no.16 on the US combined album chart.
