The original version of the song was originally recorded for French film,Sous Les Jupes des Filles. Says Imany, “The song was written for a specific scene when 2 women were about to make love for the first time. One of the two was very insecure. The song Is about dropping the layers that prevent you from being yourself.” Of the remix, Imany says, it’s more playful, maybe a little more literal. The video aims to convey a feeling of freedom – the two women are isolated from the world and safe together. “It’s about being brave enough to love who you want to love any way you want to love them. At the end of the day it all comes down to being yourself, and feeling FREE to be yourself. That’s the message behind the video.”
