10/7/22

During Pulse Music Group's annual soiree at its Silver Lake HQ on 10/6, which was absolutely stuffed with young writers, producers, artists and execs, PMG co-founder Scott Cutler struggled valiantly to remember the name of the HITS idiot who'd asked him to pose for this deathless photo (it's SVP Simon Glickman, not that you asked).

The Interscope singer/songwriter, who made a splash as the co-star of HBO Max's The Sex Lives of College Girls, delivers a starkly emotional performance on this cut and its intimate clip. "She is a force of nature, incredibly talented, driven and is truly a star," label boss John Janick says of the Adam Mersel-managed Rapp. Expect to see a lot more of this North Carolina native in the coming months.
