A new line of work for Melanie Martinez

Martinez said goodbye to “Cry Baby” last month in a popular TikTok video. “Cry Baby” (2015) was the alter ego child version of Martinez that appeared on her Cry Baby debut and follow-up albums as well as in the feature film K-12. Martinez performed what seemed to be a brand-new song while the image focused on the words “RIP Cry Baby” carved into a massive mushroom.
‘Portals’ caught the singer emerging from a big egg while a new song played, dressed in pink and sporting facial enhancements reminiscent of Shape of Water.
After her 2020 After School EP, which came with an extended version of her 2019’s LP K-12, Martinez will only release Portals in four years.
“Drama Club,” “Show & Tell,” and “Wheels on the Bus” were among the album’s songs.
