Anne-Marie says of her latest release – “Sad B!tch is a song about not being sad anymore. Whether you’ve had a break-up, lost someone, you’re feeling down or just hate your boss. It’s time for happiness. It’s time for a change of plan. Time to put yourself first. Time to turn the page. Leave it behind and start again. A new chapter, a new storyline. A new you.”
The wholly unapologetic ‘Sad B!tch’ – produced by Evan Blair (Dove Cameron), BillenTed (Little Mix, Tom Grennan) and Upsahl (Iann Dior), with the latter also penning the track alongside Anne-Marie – timestamps a period in Anne-Marie’s life when she looked inward and reassessed her self-worth. A track that comes packaged with the wit and directness that has only added to the telling-it-as-it-is star’s enormous ascent, ‘Sad B!tch’ knocks self-loathing on its head, finding Anne-Marie take the reins of her feelings. The official video, shot in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, follows an exuberant Anne-Marie round an empty theme park, as she fully embraces her own time and space (watch here).
Today’s release is the official follow-up to Psycho feat Aitch – Anne-Marie’s UK Top 5 hit. Permeating TikTok, streaming and radio at the end of 2022, it spent seven weeks inside the UK Top 10 and recently became Gold certified in the UK. The song was taken to new heights when Anne-Marie and Aitch shut down Radio 1’s Live Lounge with a performance of the single alongside an inspired rework of Sam Smith and Kim Petras’ ‘Unholy’ (watch here).
Crowned with the ‘Music Award’ at Glamour Magazine’s Women of the Year Awards in November, 2022 proved a triumphant one for Anne-Marie. Selling-out a UK arena tour, including a show at London’s Wembley Arena, Anne-Marie also returned to the nation’s TV screens as a lead coach on The Voice.
Anne-Marie is currently recording her third album, set for release later this year.
