  • After listening to OutKast one day, Tierra Whack decided to create a song that promotes free love and positivity. She came up with "Body Of Water," where she sings of being able to love anyone, whatever the color of their skin. "It's about freedom," Whack told Apple Music. "I want everybody to feel free. I want everybody to love whoever they want to love and just be who they want to be, and just don't fight it. How I keep saying, whatever's in you, feel that feeling thoroughly. Rock with that. Go with that."
  • Whack actually came up with the song in 2017. She finally recorded it for Pop?, one of a trio of genre-themed 3-track EPs she dropped in December 2021 along with Rap? and R&B?
  • Whack's go-to producer J Melodic created the trap-based beat. The two Philly natives came up with the track during one of their regular 12-hour studio sessions.
