The first song to be taken from Azealia Banks' album Fantasea II, this upbeat house track was inspired by the rapper's exploration with faith.
"I wrote this song about finding myself and finding God. Not at all specific to any religion, this song was written to embody the feeling felt when you connect with the universe," Banks explained on Instagram. "Sometime we feel afraid to take chances that will bring us out of our comfort zones and it's always in those moments that God finds you and lets you know that you are exactly in the right place… at the right time."
The song is titled after Vogue magazine editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. Banks said:
"I relate to Anna Wintour So much as a strong, powerful and larger than life soul in a petite, tidy and feminine body. While others may see Anna as intimidating , I see a woman who was born into this world with an absolute certainty about her place in it."
Another inspiration was Stacie Orrico's 2003 self-titled debut album. Banks said:
"I am and have been since the age of 12, very inspired by Stacie Orrico's work on her self-titled debut… Her ability to craft songs which teeter along the lines of gospel/Christian pop/pop is something that inspires me so much."
The Boyz II Men hit "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday" is an a capella cover of a song from 1975 by G.C. Cameron that was used in the movie Cooley High to express the feeling of parting ways with high school friends.
