LA-based music artist Peyton Shay has released her new angsty 2000’s pop single “Badder Than The Bad Boys”. At only 19-year-old her resume is already impressive, including being one of the youngest female charting artists on Billboard. We were lucky enough to sit down with Peyton in May to discuss her music and what’s next for her, check out that interview here.
“Badder Than The Bad Boys” is a brilliant follow-up to her debut EP Pretty Boi Homicide, which was released in October 2021, and the singles “Aftertaste” and “True Love Never Dies”. The lyrics are very much about disagreeing with what society appears to the the ‘norm’. When speaking about her new track Peyton said,
“The idea behind ‘Badder Than The Bad Boys’ started in high school. I grew up in a very proper and standardized town where everyone followed certain paths and expectations, even the ‘bad boys’ followed a norm. I couldn’t stand it. I wanted to be on top of the world and genuinely live life for myself. This song is about me speaking and thinking how I want, not how everyone else expects me to. I hope this song gives power to the listener and helps them discover their true self.”
The track is accompanied by a music video, which follows a defiant Peyton as she revels in her opposition to the status quo. You are able to check the video out below:
