“I'm really excited to have a new single out! It has been 8 years since my last solo single, so it has been a long time coming. This song reflects a whole bunch of emotions, from not being able to release new music to not having the confidence, but now it has come full circle and I am ready to release something that is really fun and I'm proud of” says Mel B. “I hope this puts a smile on everyone's face. Please enjoy and thank you for all of your support to make this all possible!”
