Speaking of the song to MTV.UK, Tulisa said: "The Female Boss is not going soft by bringing out a ballad, just because someone is 'a female boss' doesn't mean they don't have a heart. The Female Boss does not just represent being hard, it's about female empowerment and a feminine trait is to have emotions and to be able to express those emotions. I do have a very sensitive side, I am a highly emotional person if I don't always let it show but you might see it now and then on The X Factor
Tulisa continued: "I've always wanted to release a ballad, I never really got to do it with N-Dubz. The closest I got to that was 'Best Behaviour
' and we were accommodating for each other as a three. Now I get to do it.
I just absolutely love the song, it's not because I am singing it, anyone in the world could sing this song and I would be like 'I have to have that song'."
