Her music style is called “Dark Pop” by some people. Usually, I do not listen to this kind of electric pop music to be honest with you. But I checked her YouTube videos and I see that she is such a cool young lady. She has a cool low voice and a unique pitch. Also, she supports Black Lives Matter, LGBTQ rights, Palestinians, abortion rights, and women’s rights. I know that she will be supported strongly by younger generations.
