U Gotta Love Being U, is MonkeyRat's first pop/singer-songwriter/folk pop, single and Anna's first co-written song with Hans Andrias Jacobsen and Beinir Troest Rasmussen. All three songwriters were selected in 2018 and participated in Koda's co-writing session at Reinsaríið, in the Faroe Islands.
Anna liked the universal message so much, that she later added a 2nd verse in 2019 and asked Alain Apaloo to sing the song, because of his distinct African accent and spiritual journey within. As producer, Anna heard soft sounding oohs and ahhs in her head and asked African American singer, Deborah Herbert to once again lend her beautiful soothing voice for the final touch.
In these dark and uncertain times, U Gotta Love Being U lifts the spirit and raises the vibration spreading a message of positivity and love.
