Brown explained to Clash Magazine: "'Laugh Now' is just like 'Laugh at me now.' I've been around, this is my 6th album, I've sold out my tour in two days now. Folks worldwide, people laugh now, by all means. It's probably the only dark lyric on it, all the other lyrics are sort of uplifting and sunshine and this one's a bit kind of bittersweet. Bit of roses, bittersweet, like I'll give you a kiss and stab you in the back at the same times. Bit dark, bit of a dark lyric, yeah. Again a shout out to anyone who wronged me, I forgive you but go to hell, you know."
