Duffy is sending “lots of love” to fans after a four-year social media break.

The “Mercy” singer (nÊe Aimee Duffy) posted a new Instagram video on Monday, four years after publicly revealing she was a victim of rape and kidnapping.

The 39-year-old musician shared an uplifting video from the philosphart account that conveyed a message about the pursuit of happiness.

“You’re going to realize that happiness was never about your job or your degree or being in a relationship,” said the voiceover in the video.

“Happiness was never about following in the footsteps of everyone who came before you. It was never about imitating the others. One day, you’ll see it. “That happiness was always about discovery, hope, listening to your heart, and following it wherever it led you,” the video concluded.

“Happiness was always about being good to oneself. It was always about embracing who you were becoming. One day, you’ll realize that happiness was always about learning to live with yourself, and that it was never in the hands of others.

“One day you will realize that true happiness comes from within, and no external factors can define it,” says the narrator. “It was all about you. “It was always about you.”

The musician simply captioned the photo: “A little something to motivate the heart.” I hope you are all doing well. “Much love, Duffy.”

Fans of the musician swamped the comment area with messages of love and support.

“We love you and hope that you are happy, content, and where your heart desires you to be. “Sending you lots of positive energy and hugs,” said one fan.

“Duffy, we miss you.” And we love you. I hope you are doing well. “Remember, you are loved here. â™Ĩī¸,” another said.

In February 2020, the Welsh singer released a now-deleted Instagram post explaining why she took a 10-year hiatus from music. She revealed that she had previously been drugged, raped, kidnapped, and held hostage in a foreign country.

“Many of you are wondering what happened to me, where I disappeared, and why,” wrote the Grammy-winning performer. “The truth is, and please trust me I am ok and safe now, I was raped and drugged and held captive over some days.”

She stated that “the recuperation took time,” adding, “There’s no light way to put it. But I can tell you that after a decade of committing to wanting to feel the sunshine in my heart again, the sun now shines.”

In April 2020, the singer posted a personal essay in which she described the horrible circumstances that occurred during her birthday celebration.

She told how she was drugged in a restaurant before being kidnapped and transferred to a foreign country. Duffy stated that she “could have been disposed of by him” and that “he made veiled confessions of wanting to kill” her.

Duffy admitted that she pondered fleeing but feared for her life. “I do not know how I had the strength to endure those days,” she stated in an email.

Duffy launched her first album, Rockferry, in 2008, which won the 2009 Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album and featured the international hit ballad “Mercy.” After releasing her second album in 2010, she took a break from music the following year. She made a brief return in 2015, recording three songs for Tom Hardy’s film Legend, in which she also played a supporting part.

In March 2020, she released the single “Something Beautiful.” Her most recent Instagram post before Monday, “River in the Sky,” was from June of 2020.
