Singaporean singer-songwriter duo Amanda Ong and Sope have released a song about living with diabetes. The two 26 year olds have Type 2 Diabetes.

The song is a lighthearted attempt at reflection without being dismissive of what it means to live with the health condition, revealing the pair’s lifestyle and diet changes among other struggles. The track is available on all major music streaming platforms.

Delivering the song together was a cathartic experience for both singers, who have varying struggles with diabetes. The continual questioning and back-and-forth in the chorus sum up their eternal struggle with their condition and health.

The two singers seem to agree that you will never really know what it is like to have a health condition until you try being that person.

A music video of the song will premiere on Amanda Ong’s YouTube channel on Nov 24 at 9pm, supported by Diabetes Singapore.
