Baby, I'm A Queen

  • Lyrics
  • Vocalist Sophie Hawley-Weld explained this emotional pop song's meaning: "Just because you are vulnerable, doesn't mean you have to let yourself be belittled or infantilised", she said. "Why is 'baby' the default nickname? We are strong and empowered because we cry, because we desire, and because of what is chaotic about us. This song is about standing up as strong and powerful, because of that courage to share ourselves. It's about being both a baby and a queen at the same time."
