“It’s amazing to feel so much love and support from people. I’m humbled and excited, to be honest,” she said. “When I was putting together this song, I was thinking to myself: ‘What would be the first thing I’d want to do coming out of quarantine?’ It’s been a rough couple of months globally, and so having some fun again and connecting with people again, feeling that excitement, that’s what was on my mind. I did not expect this at all, and it’s really amazing.”
