Don’t know why is about breaking up with someone who refuses to let go, even though it was their mistakes they don’t accept the breakup! We all can relate to this.
“I wrote this during a breakup, so it is very much based in reality. I worked on this song in my bedroom. My idea, I wanted it to be a relationship realization type of song with a chill beat , yet with afrobeat drums feel.”
