Meanwhile on TikTok, Erica Padilla shared a teaser video of herself listening to the fully-produced track and smiling.
Erica said: “I wrote a song about never wanting to go back to your lowest point — rock bottom. It’s a song about doing absolutely anything you can to and working hard to never be at the point again.
“It’s about conquering your demons, picking yourself back up when you’ve fallen and following your dreams.”
The 20 year old star enters the fray as the 11th entry, after winning the SBS and Blink TV’s TikTok wildcard competition. Erica Padilla joins artists including Isaiah Firebrace, Jaguar Jonze and Paulini in the Australia Decides 2022 final for the chance to fly the Australian flag in Turin.
