Dylan Mulvaney Drops Debut Single ‘Days of Girlhood,’ Shares Summery Music Video

Forget about the dog days, the “Days of Girlhood” are here! TikTok personality Dylan Mulvaney kicked off the week with the release of her debut non-holiday single “Days of Girlhood” (March 11) and followed that up with the unveiling of the track’s official music video on Wednesday (March 13).

“Calling women of all ages / Girls like me gotta learn the basics / Last look, quick change, sip champagne / Playin’ catch up ’cause we missed the pre-game,” she croons over a thumping pop-rock arrangement crafted by Nick Monson. Co-penned by Mulvaney and Skyler Stonestreet, the sugar-sweet pop single finds the influencer exalting the clichés of girlhood and honoring the impactful women in her own life.

Later in the song, which bears its title from that of her viral TikTok vlog series, Mulvaney appears to reference her Bud Light controversy, chanting, “Boys on the dance floor, it’s finally clear / The patriarchy is over, you can hold our beer!”

The song’s Kajal-helmed music video opens with Mulvaney taking the dreaded “walk of shame” before assembling her girlfriends to start a recovery process that includes bubble baths, glasses of champagne, fun choreography by the swimming pool, and a strong commitment to pink, Barbiecore aesthetic. Several influences appear in the clip, including Gigi Gorgeous Getty, Veondre Mitchell and Loren Grey.

On Tuesday (March 12), Mulvaney shared a lengthy vlog reflecting on her second year of publicly transitioning to her Instagram and TikTok profiles. At the end of her reflections, she highlighted The Trevor Project, a nonprofit focused on LGBTQIA+ suicide prevention, saying, “Every time that you stream my song or use it on a social media app, any profits that I make through Pride Month, I will be donating to The Trevor Project.”

Mulvaney’s debut pop single comes a week after Lady Gaga came to her defense. In celebration of International Women’s Day (March 8), Mulvaney shared a photoset of her and Lady Gaga posing together and interacting on the set of a photoshoot. An avalanche of transphobia ensued and on Monday (March 11), the Oscar-winning “Shallow” singer rebuked the vitriolic trolls.

“It’s obvious we still have to do as a society to make room for transgender lives to be cherished and upheld by all of us,” she wrote. “I feel very protective in this moment, not only of Dylan, but of the trans community who continues to lead the way with their endless grace and inspiration in the face of constant degradation, intolerance, and physical, verbal, and mental violence… I hope all women will come together to honor us ALL for International Women’s Day, and may we do that always until THE DAY that all women are celebrated equally.”

While “Days of Girlhood” marks Mulvaney’s first proper pop single, it is not her first musical release. Last year (Dec. 15, 2023) she released a gloomy holiday single titled “Blue Christmas.”
