Inspired by his struggle with identifying as LGBTQ+, talented Londoner SXMSON is back today with new anthem ‘L2LY’.
Produced and co-written by EMRE, the song sees SXMSON reassure his younger self that life gets better when you learn to love who you are.
“I spent a lot of my childhood learning to hate myself. I think many of us are inherently taught to not like who we are. Years of verbal abuse, social pressures and feeling lonely had a long lasting impact on my self-esteem, which, now as an adult, I am trying to slowly unlearn. Even though I am proud of the person I have become today, I wonder how different things could have been if younger me had the chance to spend [even just] 10 minutes with present me. ‘L2LY’ was written as a daily reminder that however hard life gets, you gotta keep pushing through because life is too short to not know how badass you really are.”
