Baby Queen returns with new anthem "Wannabe"

10 November 2021, 10:04 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Baby Queen is back with new single "Wannabe", marking her first outing since September's mixtape The Yearbook.

Following the release of Baby Queen's debut mixtape in September, the artist, real name Bella Latham, has dropped a new single titled "Wannabe", which she describes as "the underdog’s anthem."

Latham continues, "It’s a song I wrote about the way other people have perceived me throughout my life. I feel like I’ve always had something to prove to other people and I’ve always been trying to fit into an ideal of who I should be and how I should behave. That changed when I became Baby Queen. I found a place I belonged and people who fully accepted me for who I am. By the standards of the people I grew up with, or used to try so hard be friends with, I might be weird or crazy or “the girl who kisses other girls” or a total wannabe, but by the standards of my people, I am great just the way I am. The song is an invitation to accept yourself and embrace the labels that are given to you by small minded, boring people. If this is what it means to be a loser, then I hope I’ll be a loser for the rest of my life."

Baby Queen's "Wannabe" single is out now on Polydor. She'll play London's Electric Ballroom on 27 April 2022. Tickets go on general sale this Friday, 12 November at 9am GMT from
