“Girls Like Us,” Wees’ follow-up single, was praised by People as “a vulnerable pop anthem that pushed for togetherness and solidarity to girls around the world.” She performed the track on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Found on her debut EP, Golden Wings, the two songs have amassed over 860 million combined global streams.
