This song finds Solange singing about staying true to herself, in times of both success and failure. It was the first tune she penned for her A Seat At The Table
album back in 2012. She recalled on her website
"I wrote and recorded it with just me and the piano, and I actually did that for a couple of the songs on this album. Afterwards, I had a jam session with Questlove and Ray Angry, and we just jammed to the piano track and the melody. I realized at that time that that's how I wanted to make the album. I just wanted to get musicians in the room and build off of the melodies and chords that I had already been building. I wanted the essence of the music to create naturally and set the tone for the songwriting."
