Songfacts®:

  • On September 5, 2014 G.R.L founder member Simone Battle was found dead at her West Hollywood home leaving the group a quartet. Her death was ruled a suicide by Los Angeles authorities. This is the first song release by G.R.L. since their tragic loss.
  • The track is dedicated to Battle. The group's Emmalyn Estrada told People: "We rehearsed the other day without her and it's just weird. But she was so passionate about singing and this group, and I feel like we're keeping her memory alive by being together. But right now we're focused on the song and the positive message overall, about being together in hard times. We're taking everything else one day at a time."
