Kate Cosentino – “Prettiest Girl In The Room”

In a statement, the artist said, “The song was a way for me to process my own problems with body image and judgment of others. I wanted to write something that garnered empathy for anyone who never feels like the prettiest girl in the room, as well as anyone who feels no one sees them beyond their exterior.”
