Dove Cameron has released her latest single ‘Girl Like Me’.
The new song is a gender-flipped version of the 1994 hit ‘Girl Like You’ by Edwyn Collins, and showcases Dove’s perspective on gender roles and power dynamics within relationships.
In a statement, Dove said, “I grew up listening to the original by Edwyn Collins and it’s been one of my favorite songs for as long as I can remember. I’ve always wanted to cover it, and then one day, we had the idea to gender flip it and write an empowering response to the original. I wanted the song to have a more synth-y, club future sound. It’s the kind of song that I would want playing behind me in a slow motion fight scene in the action film of my dreams.”
Dove has had a big year with her musical endeavours, with two Best New Artist wins from the VMAs and AMAs this year, as well as a Best New Artist nomination at the PCA’s. ‘Girl Like Me’ is the latest in a string of releases, including her chart-topping single ‘Boyfriend’, ‘Breakfast’ and ‘Bad Idea.’
This year has been full of exciting developments for Dove, including her debut at the 2022 Met Gala and an appearance at Tribeca Film Festival to premiere her film Vengeance. She is also returning for season 2 of the Apple TV+ series Schmigadoon!
