Courtney Love gave Baby Queen a "track by track" rundown of her debut album ‘Quarter Life Crisis’.

Baby Queen, 26, has struck up a close friendship with Courtney, 59, after citing her as an inspiration and she revealed that Courtney had been a huge help when working on her first album.

The singer - whose real name is Arabella Latham - told Hattie Collins on Apple Music’s Proud Radio: "Everyone’s been really lovely. I’ve had the full rundown from Courtney Love per track. She’s just really supportive, and she likes to tell me which ones she doesn’t like.

"And then, you can tell which ones she’s going to like. She loves the second track ‘Kid Genius’. And then, this song called ‘Every Time I Get High’, which have a rock energy to them. And they’re very empowered. And she loves Baby Queen."

Meanwhile, Baby Queen previously spoke about how The 1975‘s self-titled debut record influenced her career.

She told NME: “I was 17-years-old and still in South Africa when it came out, and it was when I started to go off the rails. It was the first time I felt like a teenager; it was a really late progression for me. I discovered this album and it altered my taste permanently.

“I had this dream of moving to London and that song [‘The City’] inspired me. I was coming from this really small place and that album represented the beacon of what London was to me,” she continued. “I don’t know if I would have made the move without it. I can’t imagine how it could have happened any differently. It was really influential. There’s so many bangers: ‘Girls’, ‘Chocolate’, and I really like ‘M.O.N.E.Y’ and ‘She Way Out’.”
