” Change your life ” was recorded at Biffco Studios in Brighton, United Kingdom. written as a pop ballad with elements of soul mixed in with orchestral arrangement and thumping back beats.
At the beginning of the song is a spoken piece by Leigh-Anne Pinnock, this was to be compared to the 1997 single ” Never ever ” by another all girl group All saints.
