Sean told Zane Lowe regarding the record's concept: "This album, this is my snapshot of what I'm going through right now, what I'm feeling like. I Decided. means so many things. I feel like life is all about the decisions you make. This is what I decided. That's why I put a period on the end of it because this is definitive."
