The single acts as a precursor to a collection of breakup songs that make up half of her latest album. Setting the tone for what is coming in the album, she carefully dips into all the emotions and events that take place through the life of a relationship.
Working with Brandon Mingo, Opacic brings a lived authenticity to her music creating a fresh and refreshing sound. The pair met in college and have been working together ever since.
