This epic feel-good ballad was previously recorded by Miley Cyrus for the soundtrack to the film The Last Song, which co-starred her former fiancé, Liam Hemsworth. Cher told Billboard magazine that she was attracted to the song as its lyrical content stands out in contrast to most tracks concerning matters of the the heart. "Love songs are [usually about] 'I'm looking for love' or 'I've lost love,'" she said. "They're usually not 'I found love, I lost love, and now I hope you find love with someone else.' Usually we're not that charitable."
