“I WANTED TO RELEASE A SONG THAT EVERY FEMALE COULD RELATE TO AND THEN IT HIT ME THAT WOMEN ARE EMPOWERED BY THE COLOUR OF THEIR SKIN SO WHY NOT ENDORSE IT WITH THEM. THE SONG IS FOR ALL SHADES OF WOMEN, IT TEACHES THEM TO LOVE WHO THEY ARE WHILE ENTERTAINING THEM AND I FEEL ITS THE RELATABILITY OF THE SONG THAT IS MAKING IT SO IMPACTFUL”Said SkipDaLine

THE SONG IS PLAYING EVERYWHERE IN NORTH AMERICA, THE CARIBBEAN, AND PARTS OF AFRICA AND I AM THANKFUL FOR EVERYONE WHO MADE THIS SUCCESS POSSIBLE.
