Last month I called out for girls of all ages to get involved with my music video for my most recent single "Queen". Less than 2% of songs you hear on the radio are fully created by females, I wanted to raise awareness of this issue while trying to solve it by creating an all female track, and now it comes with a matching all female video! I had some unbelievable responses and support (names under the video below), after compiling all the stunning footage I worked with Alicja Romanowska to edit it. I'm super proud to share this video with you and massively inspired by all the incredible women who teamed up to make it happen (ENDLESS THANK YOUS TO ALL OF YOU). Make sure you follow my Vevo page on Youtube and the Vevo App, to ensure you're always notified as soon as my new videos land! Oh yeh..and the press told me this wasn't a story - so let's make it one?! Share this clip far and wide and let's make some empowering noise!
Thank you to all the girls involved. You are all so special and inspiring to me. Nearly everyone involved is named below, some with links and descriptions to their work - please check them all out. You can be anything you want to be:

I dedicate this one to the ExXterminators who are done with "fake love". When we say we love each other, we mean it, we care and we back each other to the end.
Love to everyone supporting my new music, playing it loud and proud. I see sparks when you're tweeting and showing me your Instagram/Snapchat stories - let's keep lighting it up so we can get a fire blazing under this song.
HEY! <- CAN YOU TELL I'M EXCITED BY MY USE OF ALL-CAPS?
My new single "Catapult" is out THIS FRIDAY (10th November 2017). You can pre-order it now for the absolute bargain price of 99p 😲 I'll need quite a lot of you to buy it to cover the costs of making it though 😂 If you save up 33p a day for the next 3 days, you'll be able to afford the absolute tune of the year come Friday! But if you're already a G' rollin' in pennies then head over to smarturl.it/LXcatapult to pre-order it right now. While you're on your mega spending spree, why not take a gander at my shop and buy a hat to keep your head warm and make a statement on what a badass you are, or a T-shirt to show you're "lovin' the crew".
Over and out,
