Charted: 15

Songfacts®:

  • The lead single from Rebecca Ferguson's Freedom album is a soulful Pop tune about breaking free from a difficult relationship. "It's about coming out of something really messy like a messy relationship," she revealed, "and finally getting to the point where you choose to forgive the person that's hurt you rather than holding a grudge."
  • The song was premiered on Graham Norton's BBC Radio 2 show on October 12, 2013 and was released on iTunes on November 24, 2013.
  • The music video finds Ferguson performing the track while looking over a lit-up city at night. She revealed: "We're actually in the Cotswolds but when you watch the video it will look like I'm in this busy city. It's quite brilliant what [director] Nick's done."
