Lilyisthatyou is back at it with another brutally honest song that pushes the boundaries of sex-positive music. “Purity” brilliantly displays the fearless nature of her artistry as she takes on long-lasting norms of a patriarchal society.
With grimey guitars and booming pop-punk drums, “Purity” features the perfect blend of musical elements which fuse into Lilyisthatyou’s unique sound. One week after its release, “Purity” has racked up over 150,000 streams on Spotify and has gained large-scale exposure through Tik Tok.
Lyrics that effectively speak to the overall message of the song come at the end of the vibrant chorus. “Call me a slut, call me a whore, it’s obvious you’re insecure, there’s no such thing as purity anymore,” Lily confidently sings.
To compliment the song, Lilyisthatyou dropped a music video which emphasizes its core themes. One scene in particular shows the Toronto, Canada artist applying lip gloss in front of a mirror that reads “slut.” She appears to be entirely unphased by the offensive word, indicating that she does not care what you call her.
“Purity” is the third single that Lilyisthatyou has dropped following her recent drop “Party 22" and mega-hit “FMRN.” New music is on the horizon for the Warner Records artist as she continually teases fans with an endless amount of catchy hooks from upcoming songs. Listen to the new track below.
