Songfacts®:

  • This standalone single is in the vein of motivational hit tunes by Katy Perry ("Roar") and Rachel Platten ("Fight Song.") "It's very empowering," Pope said. "Very sassy … I'm showing a little bit more of an edgy side of myself."
  • The song, written by Brett Boyett with Hot Chelle Rae's Nash Overstreet, blends the singer's country roots with her love of rock music. "That's a huge part of who I am. I grew up singing country music... but I've always had that rock edge," she told Rolling Stone. "And I don't want to ever neglect that, because it wouldn't be authentic to me. So this song feels really empowering and inspirational."
  • Pope performed the song during the opening ceremony for the Special Olympics on July 25, 2015 in Los Angeles.
  • The empowerment anthem instantly affected Pope, who was picking music for her sophomore album when she first heard it. The singer immediately knew she could use the track to help others in a positive way. "The song right away just hit me in the chest, and when a song does that you really can't ignore it," Pope explained to Taste of Country. "I felt very empowered. I felt very inspired to not let the odds defeat me. I just also felt like it was one of those songs that I could really do so much with. I could really align myself with charities and really help the fans get through whatever they're going through. I could use the song to become closer to the causes that are really close to my heart."
  • The song's music video was filmed outside of Nashville with director Roman White. The clip shows how a girl that is being bullied overcomes her torment by realizing what makes her unique and invincible. "I loved the idea of using imagery that literally builds out the message of being 'invincible,'" said Pope. "No matter our age, we all go through stages of life where we need encouragement to power through a rough situation."
