Release + Track Description and Info
Melanie's next single titled "Never Backing Down" is an anthem for anyone who has ever been bullied, or conditioned by toxic company to have false beliefs (and therefore resulting in lack of belief in yourself) that lead you to feel like people want to see you fail, rather than get behind you and disallowing you to be that support you need from within yourself, before those who will support you can find you.
The song was written from drawing from Melanie's own personal traumatic battle with school bullies and subconsciously once addictive bad taste in former friends over the years.
