SOPHIE has released music under her own name and produced for artists such as Charli XCX, Madonna, Vince Staples, Flume, as well as working closely with artists and friends in the PC Music collective. SOPHIE pushed pop and electronic music to their most experimental and avant-garde extremes and shattered expectations of what these songs should sound like.

This time, SOPHIE used her voice and image well and proudly, on full display for the world to see as a transgender pop star. In an interview with PAPER Magazine, SOPHIE was asked if she believes in God. “Yes, God is Trans.” Later in the interview, SOPHIE was asked about what transn means to her. “To me, being trans is taking control to bring your body more in line with your soul and spirit so that the two are not fighting each other and struggling to survive.”
