Songfacts®:

  • This is Jazmine Sullivan's most personal song on the Reality Show album. "I'm basically crying on that song," she told Billboard magazine. "It's a ballad, and that's classic Jazmine. It's a letting-go song which is why it's so personal. I feel like I came to a point in my relationship where [I needed] to let go and move on. I just had to do it."
