Fleur says: "The song has influences from my mother's side of my family in Ghana. My mum has always made sure I know a lot about my heritage. It's really anthemic and upbeat. I'm so grateful to be starting 2019 in the position I'm in. I really feel like people got to see the real me in the jungle. I'm so much stronger as a person now and I'm really happy with my new music."
Fleur first rose to fame as a powerhouse finalist on The X Factor, with explosive performances that even landed her a No.1 on iTunes with 'Uptown Funk' before the song was even officially released.
