• This song became her first Hot 100 hit after
12 years since her debut album.
"I grinded and worked so hard for so long and got to the point of... I didn’t think it was going to happen.
I thought I might need to figure something else out. That moment bred 'Fight Song.' So that song
came because I had to make a decision, 'Am I going to keep going or am I going to give up on myself?'"
"I came up with the answer to the decision, I guess through writing the song. I didn’t even
realize it was happening, but through writing the song I made the decision to not give up on myself.
Even if it’s only getting to play to a handful of people a night, that’s enough. At least I get
to spread this message. Then funnily enough, by releasing the song, I got this amazing opportunity."
The song was first featured
Pretty Little Liars
in their Christmas-themed episode on
December 9, 2014.
