With a musical style not dissimilar to Dua Lipa or Zara Larsson, the up-tempo pop track with its distinctive Latin influences will be the singer’s 6th single since she reaching the finals of the 2019 talent show ‘The Voice Kids Poland’.

Promoting the single on breakfast TV show Dzień Dobry, the 18-year-old Fernandes said: “The song is about the fact that sometimes it is worth listening to your own heart and being guided by your intuition.
