Album: More Issues Than Vogue (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • K. Michelle dropped this piano-driven ballad on January 22, 2016. The anthem finds her singing of moving on after a split. "It's about those last steps that a person takes after a breakup: when you can acknowledge the importance of the relationship but also see that you're better off alone," she explained to Billboard magazine. "It's about taking your power back as a woman so you can stand strong as a single person, without regret."
  • Written by singer-songwriter Kelly Price and produced by Blac Elvis (Ciara, Usher), this song finds the Memphis songstress singing of moving on from a difficult relationship. "My last album (Anybody Wanna Buy a Heart?) was about a certain guy," the Memphis songstress explained. "I never thought I'd get over him. He was actually the first guy I walked away from. People would say, 'How could you walk away from him? He's gorgeous and successful.' This song reminds me what I did was right. I finally moved on, and I'm over it."
  • Concerning the chorus, Michelle wrote in a Genius attribution: "It's the most liberating feeling ever to get to the point where you don't give a f--k anymore. Everyone wants to get there, and it's easy to say you don't care, but when you actually don't care anymore, there's no better feeling - you're free! Like, I don't think about you at all, dude. Goodbye!"
  • The song was released as the first single from More Issues Than Vogue. "It's in the name," Michelle said regarding the album. "The title means we all have issues. There are a lot of issues of Vogue, but I have more issues than anybody. The first time I heard the phrase I laughed out loud because it fit me so well. Every song focuses on one of those issues. This ties everything together."
