About the song, Normani Kordei told Zane Lowe in an interview;
"[Khalid] is definitely such an amazing soul and I think that that’s why this record means so much to me personally. I know that it means a lot to him as well, it’s just because we’re genuine friends. Like, this wasn’t an A&R… somebody just putting us in a room together and being like, “Yo, make something dope.” It was literally like, I met him way back when he did “Young, Dumb & Broke.” He actually invited me and that was the first time we physically met in person, we had been talking for a minute, but he was just such a special person and I think that he’s such a necessary artist, but he’s an even better person."
- She talked about her solo work;
“I think that we definitely proven to ourselves and the rest of the world that we’ve worked incredibly hard to get to the place where we’re able to really explore ourselves now. And I think that it’s a space that we created amongst the four of us, that nobody else will probably understand.
It’s not easily understood but it’s something that we understand within each other and we’re confident women individually and also together but we do recognize that you know at the end of the day none of us would have these individual opportunities to explore ourselves or to show the world who we are, without each other… we’ve literally been through any and everything you could possibly imagine, good and bad. It’s us against the world and that’s together and apart. We’ll always have some place to call home which is Fifth Harmony.”
