"I feel like men nowadays are not holding their own, and the roles are reversed. Ladies you can never raise a man. Maturity, morals and values are instilled in the beginning of their life ... you can't teach somebody morals at 30 or even 23, you can't do it," she added.

The track serves as the second single off her debut album, "", that peaked at No. 2 on Billboard 200 after it was released last August. Michelle's new mixtape "" will arrive on Valentine's Day.
