Baby Shark has finally been knocked out of its number one spot and replaced with an ’80s Cindi Lauper synth vibe and a body-positive message that you’ll want your kids to sing on repeat.
Tell me more …
The song is called Embrace by Kinderling favourites Pevan & Sarah, featuring the voice of Taryn Brumfitt from the Body Image Movement (@bodyimagemovement). All profits from the song will go towards a documentary Taryn is making that aims to “equip kids with tangible tools to foster a positive body image” – and I think we all can all agree that that’s a cause worth getting behind!
If you’re a fan, make sure you show your support by downloading on iTunes!
Stuck in your head yet?
You’ve gotta admit – it’s definitely an earworm. But if we hear our kids dancing around the house singing, “I’ve gotta embrace my body, I’ve only got one, I’ve gotta embrace my body, show it some love” – we’re not going to complain!
Pevan and Sarah are school teachers with a passion for making songs that mean something for the world’s young people. As they shared in a recent Instagram post, “In a world where million-dollar companies are profiting from our insecurities, where the media continues to present a certain body ‘type’ as perfection, where people are conditioned to believe that a ‘bikini body’ is a thing, I hate to think about the impact that all of these things are having on our little ones.”
“Everyone, especially kids, deserves to love their bodies. It is our responsibility to teach kids to base their self-worth on more than their physical appearance.”

Thank you SO much for making us No.1 on the iTunes kids music charts! We’re so EXCITED! 🥳😲😭 Not only because it’s great to see hard work pay off, but because this means there are thousands of kids (and adults) who are hearing the lyrics that tell them they don’t need to value their self worth by the way they look! 💪🏻👏🏻 In other news, this song peaked at no.29 in mainstream charts today, we even knocked @mileycyrus and @shawnmendes off their perch. We are also ranking in the US charts!! Please, please, please go spend $1.69 on iTunes. Help us get this song out to everyone who needs to hear it!
