Anne-Marie is known for her hit collaborations, like “Friends” with Marshmello and “Rockabye” with Sean Paul and Clean Bandit. Now, she’s got a new song of her own, called “2002.”
She co-wrote the tune with her longtime friend Ed Sheeran, and the two jam-packed it with references to pops songs from the early 2000s.
“Oops I got 99 problems singing bye, bye, bye/Hold up, if you wanna go and take a ride with me/Better hit me, baby, one more time,” she sings in the chorus. “Paint a picture for you and me/Of the days when we were young/Singing at the top of both our lungs.”
She quotes lyrics from Britney Spears’ “Oops I Did It Again” and “Baby One More Time,” as well as ‘NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye,” JAY-Z’s “99 Problems,” and Nelly’s “Ride Wit Me.”
“2002” will be featured on Anne-Marie’s forthcoming debut full-length album, Speak Your Mind, due out April 27.
