"So far I am really loving the experience of having complete creative control. It is a muscle that I wanted to develop: that of identifying and exploring my unique creative expression outside of the group. I have been finding it incredibly rewarding. I cannot tell a lie!"

The new song was written for and inspired by the #GiveHerACrown campaign which was officially launched on November 24, 2020. #GiveHerACrown is a female empowerment platform which aims to change the narrative for women using storytelling and the arts.
