When speaking about the track, Tristtan states: “This song isn’t supposed to be flawless! It’s literally pure emotion and a reflection of my love for my family I am more than lucky to have. My father didn’t help me when I was a kid but instead left me seemingly without any regret. The black women in my life stepped up and have taught me all I’ve known, especially my sister. Me and my sister are thick as thieves, that's my best friend! Black women don’t get enough respect. I've seen it first hand and watched how people treat them my entire life so being able to express my unconditional love for some of them felt great. When people watched ‘The Last Dance’ Docuseries about Michael Jordan recently and began reminiscing on his accomplishments and the lessons they’ve gathered from his life I was inspired immediately as I began to think of how much of a trailblazer my sister has been for me!”
