Rising music sensation Glowe drops yet another sassy pop bop this week, in the form of her latest single ‘Mean Girls’ – a rousing, and empowering female anthem that stands as a “bold proclamation of self-assurance”.
Making its debut the very same week the new Mean Girls musical movie hits cinemas, the infectious, lyrically intelligent track, taps into many of the issues faced by young people today, but flips the narrative by challenging negative stereotypes, and celebrating the strength found in embracing unapologetic individuality.
Penned by the ‘Emotional’ singer, and produced Pearse Macintyre (Gregory Porter, Izzy Bizu, Emily Burns, Maya Delilah) the single received its premiere first place on Mollie King’s BBC Radio 1 Future Pop show this past Thursday (January 18th).
Reflecting on the true life experiences that inspired her to write the song, a candid Glowe says via a press release: “Being a loud and confident young woman at school meant I was often labeled by teachers as naughty or ‘too much’. In reality, these are the qualities that have served me best in my adult life. The music industry can be a scary place to navigate, particularly as a young woman. You have to channel a little Regina George in order to not be walked all over. Why do men always seem to be celebrated for their confident and cheeky attitudes yet women get given nasty labels?”
