The song reflects on the impact of social media on women’s mental health and self-esteem and the constant pressure to conform to idealised standards of beauty and success. 

Throughout the track, Candy Rush confronts this facade of glamour that is often presented on social media and exposes the inherent shallowness of superficial connections. The single highlights the struggles of women in maintaining their sense of self-identity whilst navigating the curated personas that are expected of them.

Through its poignant lyrics, ‘Don’t Even Wanna Know’ offers a deep commentary on the unique struggles faced by women in maintaining their true sense of self amidst the constant pressures of social media.
