“Just do it, do it, do it/ Do it, do it, yeah, yeah/ Do what you need to do, do what you need to do.”
In a statement, she said: “We have all been through situations like this when there is really nothing more to say.
“You know he’s not right and you just need to do what you need to do. “There is also an element of hope in the song that after you do what you need to do, things will get better.”
She added: “During these unprecedented times, make the most of your time indoors with some self-reflection.
