Baby Queen has dropped a video for her new single ‘You Shaped Hole’.
The track – the latest in a long line of pop bangers – arrives ahead of her mixtape ‘the Yearbook’, out 3rd September, and a headline show at London’s Omeara on 9th November.
“I was super heartbroken when I wrote this song,” she says, “and my ex was dating this beautiful supermodel after dumping me in Clissold Park in North East London. I went through a bit of a wild phase, as one does, and was doing everything I could possibly do to feel better. At the time I had this image in my mind of a hole inside my body that was shaped exactly like my ex, and it was as if I was trying to fill that hole in any way I could, but the things I was filling it with never reached the corners or made me feel any better, they just cluttered my life.”
“I really wanted this video to bring the adolescent tumult of the song to life,” she adds of the video. “It’s set in a high school in North East London and follows a solitary journey through heartbreak, pain and the boundless determination to rise above those feelings. I wanted to capture the passion I felt when I wrote it, and there was something about the idea of dancing around empty hallways and yelling the lyrics into the abyss that felt intimate and strangely familiar.”
