Didn't Know

Album: Single release only (2021)

Songfacts®:

  • Tom Zanetti recorded this club-ready rap-house crossover for his first single of 2021. It features soaring diva vocals on the chorus, which are uncredited. The voice sounds similar to that of Sadie Ama, the singer on Zanetti's 2016 hit "You Want Me."
  • That's Zanetti himself rapping. During his rapid-fire flow, the Leeds-born producer describes how he's found love with a girl from the south of England.

    Me and a 10 had been talking for weeks
    She from the south and I come from Leeds


    It's likely Zanetti is referring to his reality TV girlfriend Sophie Hermann, who lives in London. After weeks of flirting with each other on-screen during E4's Celebs Go Dating show, the German beauty confirmed their relationship on Instagram Live.
  • Zanetti's regular appearances with Sophie Hermann on her structured-reality TV series, Made In Chelsea, helped the song climb up the UK single charts.
