Common explained to The Boombox
why he chose this inspirational track, as his lead single from The Dreamer, The Believer
. "I really liked the song when we made it," he said. "After myself and No I.D. [talked], he was like, 'Man, this song is really a song that can appeal to a mass audience. But you're still being Common. You're talking about fulfilling a dream, having hope and being inspiring.'"
