Jhené Aiko's songs tend to represent different sides of herself. She told Radio.com that this tune, which was inspired by a real relationship, channels her confident but stubborn side.
Aiko told Radio.com that the song's video, which finds Aiko being busted for murder, is a metaphor for her "killing those feelings" that she had for her former boyfriend.
This was released as a single from Aiko's Sail Out EP. She explained to Artist Direct that the title is a play on words. "Obviously, it sounds like 'Sell Out' in terms of money," she said. "I've always been a fan of writing and words. Wordplay is something I've always loved. I love it when things have double meanings. The album is going to be called Sold Out, and the mixtape is called Sailing Souls. Sail Out was a happy medium between the two titles."

"The cover is me walking into this hopeless-looking place," Aiko continued. "Clearly, I don't have on any clothes. I'm just fearless like, "Who cares?" The boat looks abandoned, and it's a scary situation. I'm going into it being free. I feel like that's what sailing out is about. It's going with the wind and trusting that you're going to end up where you're supposed to be."
This won the Centric Award at the 2014 BET Awards.
