Zweli chats to British pop sensation Anne-Marie about life, lockdown, and music

33 days ago


Anne-Marie caught up with Zweli on the #947Top40CTM. They talked about new music, lockdown and being a "plant parent" amongst other things.

This was such an inspiring and heartfelt conversation between two wonderful human beings.

It's been really hard because my favourite thing has been to travel to different countries and experience that human contact and energy with different people around the world. I miss experiencing different cultures from around the world.


The lockdown has given me time to reflect and think about things and release new music.


Creatively, I've learnt a lot about that (writing new music). I haven't been able to go out and experience different things so I've enjoyed finding new ways of writing.


There's so much more to unpack and enjoy in this interview. Find out more about the artists she admires - you might be very pleasantly surprised at her inspirations. Also, it makes sense when you find out what kind of person she is.
