This is the first single from Tantil Before I Breathe, Speech Debelle's first album in four years. During her hiatus from music, the rapper curated a London-based exhibition of art produced by prisoners and appeared on BBC's Celebrity Masterchef.
Debelle explained that the song addresses "having some sort of awakening in whatever form that may come in; whether it's about who you're around, what you want to change in your life, or having some sort of a breakdown. Which I had - which was the unraveling."
"I realized I had to be broken for the light to come in," she added, "and that process is the blossoming to me, a form of expansion. This song is about waking up and being grateful for the opportunity to f--k some more things up, cry and then laugh."
