Songfacts®:

  • Kat Graham is an American singer-songwriter, dancer and actress who is best known for her role of Bonnie Bennett on The CW television series The Vampire Diaries. This empowering slice of Electro-Pop was premiered at Billboard.com on June 26, 2013 and released on digital retailers on July 23, 2013.
  • The song sees Graham finding new strength in the form of a balanced romance. "The meaning behind 'Power' for me was to express that true power comes from within," she told Billboard magazine. "Someone can come into your life and unlock the door to your potential. For me, that was love, but it can be anything to anyone… It's a song that starts off with the feeling like you're just one of many, and someone forcing you to see that in the end, there's only you."
