Baby Queen has shared an anthemic and liberating new single called “Nobody Really Cares.”
The track follows the South Africa-born, London-based rising pop artist’s recent song “Colours Of You,” which featured on the soundtrack for the hit Netflix series Heartstopper.
“‘Nobody Really Cares’ is about realizing it’s okay to be yourself and do exactly what makes you happy because people are selfish in nature and only have so much space inside their brains reserved for you,” Baby Queen explained in a press release.
“I think it’s really liberating to know that nobody cares about your self-expression as much as you sometimes think they do so filtering yourself to please them is pointless.”
“Everybody’s so in love with themselves/They’ve got no mental capacity for anyone else,” the star sings on the buzzing anthem. “Your taste, your way, and the way you dress/Is irrelevant to somebody who’s self-obsessed.”
Baby Queen is currently supporting Olivia Rodrigo on her UK tour and has announced her own headline show for November. The date at London’s Heaven on November 1 will be the star’s only headline gig for the rest of 2022. Tickets go on sale at 9am tomorrow (July 6) and can be purchased here.
Since the release of her critically acclaimed 2021 mixtape, The Yearbook, Baby Queen’s star has continued to soar, receiving accolades and glowing reviews from key publications across the board including Clash, DORK, DIY, Hunger, Wonderland, Notion, The Evening Standard, GQ, BEAT, The Independent, i-D, Gay Times, Rolling Stone, The Sunday Times and NME who dubbed her “a future leader of pop.”
Baby Queen was also tipped as one to watch for this year on the BBC Sound Of… 2022 list. Her Heartstopper track “Colours Of You” has been streamed more than 5.5 million times, while the cast of the series joined her onstage at her gig at London’s Electric Ballroom earlier this year to perform the track.
