“Rockabye” is a dancehall song about all of the single and struggling mothers in the world. The track is the second single released from Clean Bandit’s as-yet-unreleased second studio album, and their first single as a trio after violinist Neil Milan left the band. It features guest vocals from Jamaican rapper Sean Paul & British singer Anne-Marie.
The song’s lyrics describe how single mothers bear hardships to raise their children and give them the best possible life, and the upbeat music turns that theme into a motivational track.
The song was leaked onto the internet prematurely on the 20th October and was officially released the day after.
This song becomes their first single as a trio after violinist Neil Milan left the band earlier in the same week.
This is what the artist said about the song in an interview with DigitalSpy;
“We’ve wanted to work with Sean Paul for a long, long while and it’s a dream that we’ve managed to finally do it.
Anne-Marie tells the story and we love her voice. We first heard her singing with Rudimental and we’ve met her at a million festivals over the past couple of years—it’s been so lovely to collaborate together.
Jack wrote the song with Ina Wrolsden, who wrote the words about her son, which is why it rings so true for us and is so emotional and special.
