"I drew inspiration from my personal struggle with depression when writing this song," shares Matilde G. "The love for my family provided me with the motivation to respond and triumph over that difficult period." The artist further explains, "I wanted to create an anthem that would inspire others to fight back and regain control of their lives." And that's precisely what "Fighter" accomplishes. Featuring empowering lyrics such as "I'm alive, and I choose my heart over mind, gonna defeat the demons inside, I'm in charge of my life, and I'm winning this fight," the track serves as a rallying cry for those who have faced the depths of depression.

Matilde G emphasizes, "Social media often presents an illusion of perfect lives and relationships. But let's be real—we're all human, and we all encounter struggles. As a singer, I aim to keep it genuine with my fans and encourage them to pursue their own happiness. It's alright to acknowledge that you're not okay and to work on self-improvement."
However, it's not just the lyrics that set "Fighter" apart. Matilde G's commanding vocals, combined with a catchy melody and driving beat, are certain to ignite listeners' emotions. The accompanying music video showcases the rising star in a boxing ring, symbolizing the battle against depression through physical activity. Matilde G affirms, "Boxing serves as an excellent outlet for redirecting energy and combating inner demons."
And she means business. Matilde G underwent training at "The Ring Boxing Community" in Singapore, under the guidance of WBC Asia Silver Champion Abdou, in preparation for the music video. Her opponent in the ring will be none other than WBO Asia Pacific Champion Kirstie Gannaway. It is evident that Matilde G is dedicated to confronting depression head-on and is leveraging her platform as a rising star to inspire others to do the same.
The song's contemporary yet timeless sound makes it a must-listen for fans across all genres. Co-written and produced by Josefin Glennmark and Erik Lewander, "Fighter" is a track that will uplift spirits and provide the strength to persevere, regardless of the challenges one faces.
Following the success of her previous single, "Hypocrite," which garnered critical acclaim and was featured on MTV in the US, Matilde G demonstrates with "Fighter" that she is an up-and-coming star to watch, not only for her infectious pop melodies but also for her commitment to using her platform for positive impact.
