Zali says about the new song:
I wrote ‘That Girl’ as a relatable, audacious self-affirmative Soul-Pop anthem. I wanted to create a soothing daydream vibe, that gives you a feeling of good karma coming your way that you don’t want to wake up from.
It’s a reminder to girls everywhere to be unapologetic in their confidence because each and everyone one of us are ‘That Girl’ in our own rights, even when we don’t see it, there’s people out there being inspired by us everyday.
