Speaking on then release, Alex Mali states:
I’ve been in dark times where I felt as though I’m not good enough or I wouldn’t make it to where I want to be. Whenever I thought I was actually getting somewhere in life, SIKE – I’m knocked a couple steps backward and goals seemed further away. This track was just a reminder to myself that I can and have come out of trash circumstances even stronger than going into them. It’s my motivation to keep climbing, remain confident, always look for the light/positivity and I hope I can give that same energy to everyone else out there.
