  • Lyrics
  • The first single off Kehlani's debut album, this bouncy, girl-power anthem finds her singing of overcoming the trials and tests that come with being an independent woman. She penned the song to "create an unapologetic statement embracing the challenges and double standards that come with being a woman."
  • After dropping the song, Kehlani went onto Instagram to say: "THANKS FOR LETTING ME BE ME!!!!"
  • The percussive instrumental was created by the two woman production/songwriting duo Novawav, who consist of Denisia "Blu June" Andrews and Brittany "Chi" Coney.
