“I wrote Own after a huge transformation period for me; I was at a point where I was really unsure about my future and whether I could pursue music.
In an intimidating, male-dominated industry, I felt powerless and already misjudged as a beginner female artist.
Even the people closest to me questioned my choices and underestimated me which took a toll on my self-worth and mental health.
I spent a really long time working through that and healing, and it was definitely one of the hardest times of my life.
Finally, one day I got to a point where I realised, I don’t need anybody else’s approval.
The only person I needed and would ever have was myself.
That’s when I wrote Own.
It’s my self-empowerment anthem, and I really hope it can be for everyone else who needs it too.” – Hartley
