She made us wait four years but Melanie Martinez is back with a bang for her new album K-12. The album also features an accompanying film of the same name.
The album itself tackles a variety of issues affecting everyday people in this fucked up world. Her social consciousness coupled with her creativity combines to create a fascinating look into a myriad of issues, and fans love it.

6. Martinez tackles some very tough topics.
Melanie Martinez is truly one of the most talented person on this planet earth. She covered topics that no artists would ever dare to tackle: ED, Pedophilia, SA, etc. She put her entire reputation at risk in order to deliver her heart and art. #K12Movie 💘https://t.co/bq9FHMTxi7
