Mary Lambert isn’t only the pop star we want, she’s the pop star we need. Throughout her musical career, she’s consistently espoused a message of self-empowerment, urging us to love our bodies and ourselves just the way we are. In “Secrets,” a cut off her upcoming debut album, Heart On My Sleeve, the Out100 honoree again preaches the benefits of self-acceptance, singing loudly and proudly about the things we’re told we should hide. It’s the feel good song of the summer.
Heart On My Sleeve comes out September 14 on Capitol Records. "Secrets" is available for download now.
