这是Sean专辑Dark Sky Paradise释出的第四首单曲。在这首充满情歌的叙事歌中,Sean在讲述自己故事的同时给听众传达着正能量。他邀请了同厂牌的Kanye West与John Legend与他合作表达这些在Sean生活中得出的正能量、在奋斗中遇到的困难以及Sean祖母对他产生的影响。
在Sean的祖母去世时Sean接受Billboard采访说:”以我个人而言,祖母的去世肯定是一件难以接受的事情”Sean说,”但回首过去,她能摆脱轮椅的束缚、不再忍受病痛令我释怀。”这件事也影响着这张专辑的创作,这首歌就是献给她的。“创作这首歌勾起往事令我觉得悲伤,但全身心的投入令我喜悦。”他说:“我希望听众们能体会到其中的开诚布公与真实情感-这使它与专辑中的其他歌不同。”
他也在MTV的采访中说:“我的祖母刚刚去世,但在她去世之前我就写下了这首歌。主要都有关于她。但现在她听不见这首歌了。这不仅是音乐而是情感方面的事。也感谢母亲那时在旁安慰我。
她的死讯也一度令我沮丧不振,但我深知她的生平于我来说是真正的英雄”Sean在公告中说,她工作的巅峰在二战时作为一个黑人妇女上尉,之后去当了警官、教师和顾问。
这是一首完全发自我内心真挚情感的歌,我希望人们能享受它,其中传说哥和侃爷的部分也令人称赞。”

This is the fourth track released from his album Dark Sky Paradise. On this soulful ballad, Sean opens up about his life while at the same time relaying a positive and empowering message for his listeners.
He invites label mates Kanye West and John Legend along as he reflects on the positive influences in his life, the struggles he faced throughout his journey, and the influence his grandmother had on his life.
Sean spoke on her passing to Billboard:
In a selfish way, it was hard to say goodbye,“ Sean says, “but when I stepped back, I was happy she was free of the wheelchair and didn’t have to go through that.” Her death shrouded the making of the album; one song is dedicated to her. “It’s my darkest work, but it makes me happy because I put my heart into it,” he says. “I hope they can feel the sincerity, the honesty — this has more soul.
And also spoke to MTV News:
“I just lost my grandma, so, right before she passed, I wrote this song. A major part of the song is about her. She never got a chance to hear it. It’s just an emotional thing. And I’ve got my mom here with me.
I’m having a hard time accepting her death, but I must acknowledge my grandma’s life, a true hero,” Sean said in the post’s caption, which highlights her work as a black female Captain during World War II, a police officer, teacher and counselor.
It’s just a song that comes straight 100 percent from the heart, I hope people can enjoy it. And I really appreciate John Legend and Kanye West being a part of that.
