This song comes from a personal place as Posner reflects on his career to date. "I think a lot of people [are] scared to tell the truth in songs," he told The Boombox
. "Especially when it's something that's not … flattering about themselves. I was one of those artists when I first started. I would always pretend I was perfect. That s— is so corny. Imperfect is the new perfect, you know? I just try to keep it real in my lyrics [now] — I have to tell the truth."
