It’s been almost a complete year since we’ve introduced you to the otherworldly talent that is Zoe Wees, and we’re so thrilled to say her music career has skyrocketed since. Having performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Wees has been soaking in every bit of success that’s come her way. Now back with yet another astounding track, Wees delivers an empowering new single, “Girls Like Us.”
Like Wees explains in “Girls Like Us,” we all end our days in pajamas without makeup, and begin our days with massive bed heads. It’s almost as if this Germany-based newcomer has spent the past 18 years of her life learning how to love herself, which most of us continue to struggle with today. Directed by Michael Winkler, the “Girls Like Us” visual depicts Wees chained up as her makeup is removed throughout the impactful narrative, leaving us with a bare faced beauty.
On “Girls Like Us,” Zoe Wees reflected,
“It’s not always good to think about how you look to the rest of the world. It’s much more important to think about how you accept and love yourself. We’re walking through a world with blinded eyes. At the end of the day, we all go to bed without makeup with the ugliest clothes and wake up with the messiest hair on Earth.”
