"Medicine" by Baby Queen

UK artist Baby Queen, has shared her new track “Medicine,” the song is now available via Polydor Records. “Medicine” is a bittersweet commentary that digs into her relationship with anti-depressants and hints at the diaristic intimacy of her songwriting, set to be unfurled on her debut EP later this year. “It’s about a tangle of mental health and navigating your way through this world,” Bella shares, “whilst being so unhappy and equally disillusioned with the cyber landscape that we are forced to live inside, and the different ways people might numb themselves, or try to find a place where they can exist in amongst all of this fucking chaos.”

Baby Queen, is Bella Latham who was raised in Durban, South Africa, and now lives in London. Her debut single “Internet Religion,” made waves and created many new fans. Baby Queen is a deeply personal project for 23-year old Bella, born out of feeling like a misfit as she tried to fit into London life, pulled into a vacuum of fashion parties and Instagram influencers. Exposure to a world of fake personalities and self-obsession brought her back to her first passion and she felt compelled to write songs about her experiences. “I started to write bitterly about the world that I had perceived whilst being here in London, and the way that it had changed me, and the narcissist I had become,” she says. “I got obsessed with these identities that we cultivate online; the front stage self and the backstage self, who you actually are and who you pretend to be.” And so Baby Queen was born.
