She said: "I am very excited for the release. I am nervous, but really excited for people to listen to my song."

The song, produced by friend Sammy Johnson, known as RYSKI, is about calling someone and chatting to them, but when at school, they ignore you and treat you as a total stranger.

"I wrote this song when I was 15. It took me a while to release it because I wasn't sure whether to as it was my first big step in music.

"I didn't know if people were going to make fun of me or not, because people can be harsh, but I spoke to loads of people about the song and they all told me to release it, so I did."
