Fans who pre-order the EP, available HERE, will instantly receive “Ghost” plus her first two singles – “Control” and “Girls Like Us,” which have amassed over half a billion global streams combined.
“‘Ghost’ was written about letting someone get too close, even if you know they can hurt you,” explains Zoe Wees. “It’s about the feeling of being vulnerable to that person in a way that could basically destroy your life. It was written in one of my first writing sessions, so it feels special to release it.”
Wees, who is Apple Music’s Up Next artist for April 2021, performed “Girls Like Us” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” last week. The song, which has amassed over 110 million combined global streams, has been remixed by Felix Jaehn famed for his 2015 “Cheerleader” remix. Listen HERE. “Girls Like Us” remains entrenched in the Spotify Global Top 200 and, with over 33 million U.S. streams to date, America is Wees’ #1 streaming market for the song. “Control,” her first single, became a worldwide hit and entered the top 20 at Pop radio in the U.S.
In this recent feature, Notion Magazine observed, “Zoe Wees is a rare artist. At just 18 years old, her unique vocals leave you hanging on every word. The Hamburg native’s captivating lyricism feels both reflective & urgent, whilst her performance and delivery is nothing short of powerful.” Euphoria Magazine said, “Zoe Wees is one of music’s most exciting rising stars and that definitely isn’t being said for the sake of it.” People hailed “Girls Like Us” as “a vulnerable pop anthem that pushed for togetherness and solidarity to girls around the world.”
