Aretha Franklin was a very prolific artist; Aretha: A Woman Falling Out of Love is her 38th album. Released on May 3, 2011 through Walmart, it was the first on her own imprint, Aretha's Records. Aretha explained: "I felt I had recorded long enough for other people. Why not record for myself?"
Aretha told Mojo magazine that this is her favorite track on the album. She said: "It's about a relationship that did not happen. I wasn't so disappointed or hurt because the relationship didn't happen, but more because the other person was very kind."
