Speaking on the single, muva of Earth says:
‘I wrote this song about what it means to be proud of what makes you unique,
A statement to the heavenly realms asking for understanding.
I may have hurt you in the past but I didn’t mean to,
I tried my best with the experience that i have,
Know my intentions are pure and that I am learning.
