Baby Queen Premieres New Song “Wannabe” on BBC Radio 1
- London-based singer-songwriter Baby Queen premiered a new song “Wannabe” along with a music video on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Jack Saunders.
The song is her first single since her debut mixtape “The Yearbook”, which was released in September.
It was written by Arabella Latham, Edward James Carlile and Jack Leonard. Produced by King Ed.
Baby Queen told Jack Saunders about the song, “I mean, I think this song just in general is about like embracing those negative labels that people give you throughout your life. You know, like, I've always felt like a total mess. And I got to this point where I was like, people used to call me like we want to be or whatever growing up I was like it just as what being a want to be is then you know, that set like I want to be I want to be so um, it's very fun. And it's definitely feels like it's meant to be sung by a group of people. You know, it's not just about me.”
- She said of her character Baby Queen, “I've always been like this deeply insecure person, and to be able to put yourself across to people and be fiercely honest with them and then have them, sort of like you for who you genuinely are not who you're pretending to be. That's been a huge thing for me. I just think that like, I love telling people that you'll be happier. The closer you get to who you really are, like you chase that try and be authentic. And when you can actually be that person. It's so freeing and that's what it's been like for me.”
