This collaboration is a moment for each woman to assert their excellence, blackness and femininity as they break through the glass ceiling. Miitch promises “not to look down” on herself anymore, while Dash declares she’s not a loser, but a winner.
DAWN keeps her same boss energy from the original version on the intro and chorus.
Back in March, DAWN spoke to Rated R&B about writing songs for her New Breed album.
“I found myself having a bigger voice. I always knew who I wanted to be, which is why I was hurt when I did my first two albums — Armon On and Goldenheart – and people thought it wasn’t genuine,” she said.
She continued, “I was hurt that my culture didn’t embrace what I was trying to do. I was so excited to share who I really was with the world. I wanted to push Black culture forward and the things that I knew that we weren’t being represented in. I think with this album I found myself reflecting on all the times that I’ve had to be pushed into boxes. It made me reflect on the fact that it’s not about people accepting you, it’s about self-acceptance.”
