This song about the aftermath of losing a loved one is one that Brandy Clark has attempted to write for years. "My dad was killed in a work accident the July before 9/11," she explained. "When all that 9/11 stuff was going on and everyone was glued to the TV... I thought right then, 'Since you've gone to heaven, the whole world has gone to hell.' But I sat on it for years and years because it seemed so bleak."
Though there is some truth in the song, it is not necessarily autobiographical. "It's definitely not the story of my family in that song. I'll stress that," Clark said. "But I do think, a lot of times, when somebody dies, it blows things apart more than it brings things together."
Jay-Z's 2012 "Glory" features his daughter Blue Ivy Carter's cries and coos. At less than two days old, she became the youngest ever credited artist to feature on a Billboard chart when the song debuted on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at #74.
