• This reggae-derived song was inspired by personal growth. La Havas told The Guardian: "I wanted it to be hopeful. I wanted it to be joyous, I guess. I seemed to feel better as I did each part of this album. I was using music to discover what I liked. Womanhood, feeling like an adult, but not being quite mature yet – I wanted to celebrate that."
  • La Havas wrote the song with American producer Mark Batson, who has also worked with Eminem and Alicia Keys.
