Champion is a synthesizer-driven track with actual percussion, trumpet fanfare, electric guitars, and pianos. Fiona’s vocals are layered, as if she’s part of a group. The strength of a group rallying around a single champion.
Simone Biles was the inspiration for it. She experienced flak from armchair critics after withdrawing from an Olympic event. She was a champion in our view on two counts: first, for being exceptionally good at what she did, and second, for prioritising her mental and physical well-being. She is far superior to practically everybody who has ever existed. That is something to be thankful for. This song is meant to be a joyous occasion.

For ‘Champion’, Fiona takes the stage, and the seventeen-year-old impresses with her natural and captivating manner. Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of Champion, though, is David Baron’s dramatic and unconventional instrumental arrangement and production, notably during a standout chorus with booming percussion and unforgettable melody.
Listen to David Baron & Fiona Glenn ‘Champion’ song below.
“You’re a fighter
Gonna light ya
No hit and run let the rising sun
Light the cracks
Where the weak ones run”
