  • Lyrics
  • This song finds Jessie teaming up with American songstress Brandy as the two ladies sing about defying defeat over a R&B-flecked melody. "It's about one of my best friends that went through some health stuff," Jessie told Digital Spy. "I remember going through health scares and no-one understands - not everyone's disabilities are visual. I wanted to write a song about her and say, 'We can do this. We can conquer the world.'"
  • Jessie told Digital Spy that she wanted to get Brandy on the tune because she knew the American songstress is one of her friend's favorite singers, as well as one of hers. "When Brandy said yes and recorded it," she said, "I cried when I heard it back."
