Currently sitting at #2 on the Billboard U.S. Afrobeats Songs Chart, amongst others. Already ready to share her talents and vulnerability with the world, on writing the single the singer said, “I was going through a lot during Thanksgiving week and felt so unseen - nobody noticed what was going on. I remembered thinking, I have to stay consistent with my content on social media, so I can’t afford to sit around in my emotions right now. So I walked past my room to the studio, found a beat, and recorded it.”
