She got a “Whole Lot of Love.”

Singer Duffy made her first public statement in nearly four years with an Instagram video posted Tuesday.

“One day you’re going to see it, that happiness was always about the discovery,” the voiceover in the video says. “The hope, the listening to your heart and following it wherever it chose to go. Happiness was always about being kinder to yourself.”

“One day you will understand that happiness was always about learning how to live with yourself, that your happiness was never in the hands of others,” it continues. “One day you will realize that true happiness comes from within, and no external factors can define it. It was always about you.”

Duffy, 39, captioned the video: “A little something to motivate the heart. Hope you are all doing well. Lots of love, Duffy.”

The post was soon filled with comments about the Welsh singer’s return to social media.

“DUFFY I miss you soo much!! Rockferry stays on REPEAT, sending you love and light,” one user gushed, referring to the singer’s 2008 hit.

“We miss you Duffy. We love you and hope and wish you are happy, fulfilled and where your heart wants you to be,” a second fan wrote. “Where you feel you are your most true form, whatever this may mean nowadays. Stay authentic and truthful to your own compass and only sail to where you are becoming the you you want to be. Sending you lots of positive energy and hugs!”

In 2011, Duffy was set to record her third studio album and play festivals. All of that was abruptly canceled. She performed once in 2013, and acted in and contributed music for a 2015 film. Other than that, she went unseen.

“Many of you wonder what happened to me, where did I disappear to and why,” the singer wrote in her 2020 post. “The truth is, and please trust me I am ok and safe now, I was raped and drugged and held captive over some days. Of course I survived.”

“The recovery took time,” she continued. “There’s no light way to say it. But I can tell you in the last decade, the thousands and thousands of days I committed to wanting to feel the sunshine in my heart again, the sun does now shine.”

The singer pleaded with fans to not inquire further.

“Please respect this is a gentle move for me to make, for myself, and I do not want any intrusion to my family,” she wrote. “Please support me to make this a positive experience.”

The following month, Duffy sent an English radio DJ a song of hers to play — without the knowledge of her record label — to lift people’s spirits during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Duffy released a second new song that year called “River in the Sky,” which detailed her harrowing ordeal.

Duffy also penned an essay about the experience that April, detailing what she could remember happening and her brutal recovery.

“It was my birthday, I was drugged at a restaurant, I was drugged then for four weeks and traveled to a foreign country,” she wrote. “I can’t remember getting on the plane and came round in the back of a traveling vehicle.”

The singer said she was assaulted in a hotel room and that her rapist made “veiled confessions of wanting to kill” her. She was ultimately able to flee her attacker.

“As dark as my story is, I do speak from my heart, for my life, and for the life of others, whom have suffered the same,” she wrote, adding that she was working with a psychologist to help her heal.
