  • Minke sings on this female empowerment anthem about learning to let go of her defenses, especially with those you love.

    "When you're feeling really down and you're putting on a solid front to the world, but then your closest calls you and asks if you're OK and you totally break down [but then] start to feel better," she explained to Billboard magazine of the song's origins. "I wanted to celebrate being vulnerable, celebrate the people around us who pick us up, that it's fine not feeling fine - you're not alone, everyone goes through s--t and the best thing we can do is to be ourselves, truly, always... even when sometimes it's not that pretty."
