Tweet reunites with her longtime friend Missy Elliott and super-producer Timbaland on this track. The trio previously collaborated on Tweet's breakthrough single "Oops (Oh My)" back in 2002.
Tweet told Billboard magazine: "When Missy wrote 'Somebody Else Will,' she sent it to me and I had to have this record. I love the message behind it because I'm all about revelation and girl power and knowing that you don't have to stay in a situation that's not good for you. I loved the song, so I had to do it."
The album title references Tweet's birth name, Charlene Keys. "I think I touch more on my gospel [roots] this time," she said. "That's why I called it Charlene, 'cause you'll hear everything that inspired me musically before the artist Tweet. You will hear all of what Charlene grew up listening to on this album. It's a little bit more mature Tweet. You're still going to know what I've been through. The songs are pages out of my diary."
