Giving a background story as to why she chose to revisit her pain, Jessie explains, "For the seven years before I signed my record deal I was in a bad place and I was scared that I couldn't get out of it." She adds, "That's why I wrote such upbeat music, as a way of trying to escape how I felt."

The 23-year-old musician, who has written songs for and , continues, "Now that I am happier, I won't be afraid to explore my pain. But in a good way; it'll be me saying that it's OK not to feel OK. Not every song needs a happy ending."

Jessie takes inspiration from fellow singer . She praises her peer, "She said she's worried everyone thinks she's always going to be this broken-hearted woman because of the songs on ''.
