Baby Queen's eagerly awaited new mixtape 'The Yearbook’ arrives on September 3rd.
South African-born, London-based artist Baby Queen has dropped a brand new heartbreak single, the electro-pop banger 'You Shaped Hole'.
The track was premiered on Annie Mac's Hottest Record in the World yesterday on BBC Radio One and follows follows recent singles ‘American Dream’, ‘Dover Beach’, 'Want Me' and ‘Raw Thoughts’.
“I was super heartbroken when I wrote this song, and my ex was dating this beautiful supermodel after dumping me in Clissold Park in North East London,” the breakout artist (real name Bella Latham) explains.
“I went through a bit of a wild phase, as one does, and was doing everything I could possibly do to feel better. At the time I had this image in my mind of a hole inside my body that was shaped exactly like my ex, and it was as if I was trying to fill that hole in any way I could, but the things I was filling it with never reached the corners or made me feel any better, they just cluttered my life.”
Speaking about her upcoming mixtape, Baby Queen added: “It’s important to be able to capture a full range of emotion. I want the listener to feel like they’re on the top of a London bus, travelling through a city they’ve moved to for the very first time, seeing the world through new eyes.
“It’s an American coming-of-age film. It feels confusing, happy, free, lonely… all of these things you go through when you are growing up.”
A statement added that the songs are “born from personal experiences she has chosen to keep under wraps for years. Taking us as far back as 2018, they’re her most diaristic work to date, chronicling her coming-of-age”.
