Pfirrman Connects with “John Tucker Must Die” Actress Arielle Kebbel via Tik-Tok, Will Perform at Epic Cons Chicago on March 24th

 Curb Records recording artist Melanie Pfirrman releases her latest song, “John Tuckers,” directly influenced by the iconic 2006 movie John Tucker Must Die. Capturing the essence of resilience and self-discovery but delivered with a fun and upbeat twist, “John Tuckers” promises to be a pop powerhouse that resonates with listeners worldwide. Listen to the track HERE.

Co-written with friend Jonathan Thulin along with David Thulin, the track draws inspiration from Pfirrman’s personal experiences dealing with narcissism and manipulation both in her personal life and career. “John Tucker Must Die was such a formative part of my teenage years,” Pfirrman shares. “It taught me the importance of staying true to myself, knowing my worth, and not taking any toxicity from anyone. It’s like a reminder to myself and others that we deserve better.” The modern rhythmic pop track pulls from the energy of the early 2000s and, in the tradition of artists like Ariana Grande, SZA, and Selena Gomez, invites listeners to join in on a journey of self-love and empowerment, setting the stage for a fierce and uplifting experience.

Building anticipation for the release, Pfirrman has been engaging with fans on TikTok, where she has been sharing the song for several months. Her efforts caught the attention of Arielle Kebbel, who portrayed Carrie in John Tucker Must Die, leading to an invitation for Pfirrman to perform the song at Epic Cons Chicago, an early 2000s teen drama fandom convention taking place March 22-24.

About Melanie Pfirrman:

From her multi-million-streaming duet with Latin superstar Pitbull to her pop-influenced R&B anthems, Melanie Pfirrman makes modern music that’s diverse and driven. It’s an adventurous sound that blurs the boundaries between genres and countries, created by a lifelong musician whose songwriting is every bit as powerful as her voice. Signed by Sidewalk Records in 2016, Melanie kickstarted her career with I Don’t Wanna Love, an EP that yielded the Top 10 Radio Disney hit “Go Steady.” Two years later, she widened her musical reach with “Suda,” a steamy collaboration with hip-hop icon Pitbull and Grammy-winning producer IAmChino. Influenced by the multicultural mix of Spanish and American music that once filled her childhood home in California, “Suda” became a viral hit that introduced Melanie’s music to international audiences. She followed its release with bilingual songs like “En Mis Tacones,” which found her teaming up with singers Fanny Lu and Paty Cantú, and “Rosé,” which mixed Cumbia grooves with tropical melodies. Reinventing herself once again, Melanie Pfirrman began refocusing her attention on another childhood influence: the timeless sounds of late-’90s and early-2000s R&B. Released in 2022, “It’s Not Gonna Kill You” nodded to that deep well of inspiration, serving as the launchpad for a string of new, R&B-accented songs.
