Album: I Remember (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • Aluna Francis sings here about a man watching his wife competing in the Olympics. She explained the lyric to the BBC. "I have a lot of strong women around me and there's an assumption they won't be able to find somebody who's able to champion their career," she said. "But I was like, 'do you know what? It does exist.'"

    "There are definitely men out there who get high on a woman achieving something, and not being jealous or emasculated," Francis added. "If you're a man and you can love a woman who is doing something big like that, it means so much. It could even be the reason why they succeed."
