Taking the No. 1 spot on the global iTunes, Shazam and musical.ly charts, lead single "FRIENDS" has become one of the year's biggest hits. The official friend zone anthem has sold nearly two million adjusted units worldwide and exceeds 400 million streams. Views of the official video have surpassed 130 million while the new live acoustic video of "FRIENDS" racked up 3 million views in less than a week. A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie Remix recently premiered on WorldStarHipHop.com.
On Speak Your Mind, Anne-Marie's playfully infectious pop spirit entwines with her humorous, idiosyncratic storytelling. The album spans a number of personal yet relatable topics that only Anne-Marie could unite so compellingly: album opener "Cry" is a message to the ex-boyfriend who wants you back after ditching you for someone else; the empowering "Perfect" is an ode to self-love and appreciation while "Machine" imagines a world free of negativity. Other tracks include her gold-certified single, "Alarm," and "2002," a song that she wrote with Ed Sheeran, who also contributes vocals.<

Co-writes come from Emily Warren (The Chainsmokers, Shawn Mendes), Ina Wroldsen (Clean Bandit, Jess Glynne), Jennifer Decilveo (Andra Day) and the aforementioned Ed Sheeran.
