YUNGBLUD is back with another single from his upcoming album Weird! titled “Cotton Candy” and it serves as a sexual liberation anthem. This single follows the previously released “Weird!,” “Strawberry Lipstick,” and “God Save Me, But Don’t Drown Me Out.” The UK singer-songwriter hoped to send a message of hope with the message that it’s okay to be exactly who you are and to not be ashamed of who you love with this song. The pop-infused track is all about how its okay to explore your sexuality in order to find yourself and figure out who you want to be.
The 23 year old sings in the song’s pre-chorus “And I wanna get stuck between your teeth like cotton candy
So you’ll remember me, darling” suggesting that he wants to have a lasting impression on the person he’s involved with who he ultimately gets lost in. He then continues in the chorus with the lyrics “I’m losing myself in you // And you, and you, and you, and you, I know // Leave me in the morning // Although, I don’t wanna be on my own.”
“‘Cotton Candy’ is about sexual liberation,” the singer mentioned in a statement about the song. “To me sex and sexuality is about freedom and the idea that you can to lose yourself in other people of all genders, of all shapes and sizes to find yourself and figure out who you truly are. Sexual interaction should not be shamed, it should be celebrated because to have safe sex is to spread love and the world needs love more than ever right now.”
