Breakout pop star Zolita has released the gut-wrenching single, “Grown Up.” The song is appearing on her forthcoming album, Queen of Hearts, out May 31 via AWAL/Sony Music. This single follows “All Girls Go to Heaven,” “Small Town Scandal” and “Bloodstream” released earlier this year. The pageant-esque slow burn “Bloodstream” is also reminiscent of 2018’s “Like Heaven,” which is listed on Billboard’s “30 Lesbian Love Songs.”

On her new single “Grown Up,” Zolita unleashes the blistering angst of a past relationship. The lesbian singer-songwriter sings, “I don’t get how you were having fun, I was way too young,” the music gathering fury with each repetition of the lyric.

“‘Grown Up’ is definitely the heaviest song on the album,” Zolita says in a statement. “It’s about a situation in my life that I never thought I was going to write about—or talk about. But it’s something that many women in my life have gone through in one way or another.”

Best known for her breakout success of her “Somebody I F*cked Once” trilogy in 2022, Zolita had plenty of viral moments starting with 2015’s “Explosion,” and even 2017’s “Fight Like a Girl,” which is a protest song with feminist themes inspired by the Donald Trump 2016 presidential campaign. As the 29-year-old readies for her sophomore album, her blend of dark pop and R&B is audibly Lady Gaga-inspired stoked with witchcraft and other religious quirks.

Zolita will go on tour in tandem with her sophomore album, Queen of Hearts. The 23-date Queen of Hearts tour kicks off on September 13 at the Constellation Room in Santa Ana, CA. The tour will hit cities like Philadelphia, Dallas and Minneapolis before October 18’s final show at the Troubador in Los Angeles. View more ticket information here.
