Singer-songwriter Catie Turner has unconventional motives to exact psychological torture on her ex by stealing his dad in her new music video for her most recent single, “Step Mom.”
The quirky and playful video, directed by Joe DeSantis, made its broadcast premiere on MTV Live, MTVU, MTV Biggest Pop and on the Paramount Times Square billboards. Singer/songwriter Miki Ratsula stars alongside the American Idol season 16 alum, playing both the role of Catie’s ex and his dad, sporting a variety of outlandish costumes and wigs, including a silver fox mustache. Catie performed the song throughout her recent tour with Léon and it quickly became a fan favorite.
“The Step Mom video was so much fun to make,” said Catie in a press statement. “Huge thanks to Miki Ratsula for donning the mustache to make my twisted, dad-stealing psycho fantasy a reality.”
Catie broke through with the single “God Must Hate Me.”
A self-proclaimed “overthinking, overwhelmed musician with a talent in over-complicating situations,” Catie’s breakthrough hit single, “God Must Hate Me,” proved a viral phenomenon upon its November 2021 release. “God Must Hate Me” is Catie’s top streaming record to date with 52.9M global streams. In the first 3 days, the single earned 173K streams and 1.2M streams in the first week. The track landed Catie on the cover Spotify’s “Next Gen Singer Songwriters” playlist while earning over 38M streams.
In 2021, Catie released her debut EP, Heartbroken and Milking It, introduced by the single “Therapy.” Most recently, Catie has been touring the US with Valley and LEON and releasing music like the recent high-energy bop “Nothing,” which she dedicated to her “fellow procrastinators.”
While gracing the cover of Spotify’s “Sad Hour” playlist, last fall also saw Catie team up with pop artist JORDY for a moving, co-written duet, “(Wish I Didn’t Have To) Lie,” followed by a series of US tour dates that saw the two artists further collaborating by performing their song together onstage.
