Anne-Marie Drops New Song '2002,' Co-Written by Ed Sheeran: Listen

Daniel Malikyar


On her newest single "2002," Anne-Marie has a penchant for nostalgia as she recalls that early aughts summer. The pop track -- which was co-written by fellow Brit Ed Sheeran -- is about falling in love during adolescence and all the emotions that evokes.

As she sings "2002," the 27-year-old references late '90s/early 2000s chart-toppers throughout the chorus -- songs that a young Anne-Marie and friends used to sing so fondly -- including JAY-Z's "99 Problems," *NSYNC’s "Bye, Bye, Bye" and Britney Spears’ "...Baby One More Time" and "Oops!...I Did It Again."

"Oops I got 99 problems singing bye, bye, bye/ Hold up, if you wanna go and take a ride with me/ Better hit me, baby, one more time," Anne-Marie sings.

According to the song’s narrative, these Billboard Hot 100 singles also soundtracked the day that the singer and her love interest first fell for each other. 

Anne-Marie’s full-length debut album, Speak Your Mind, which includes "2002" and her hit Marshmello collaboration "Friends," is due April 27.
