“I wrote this song immediately after finding out my ex was cheating on me with another girl for the entire relationship. I was definitely in a mix of emotions and went through many emotions and insecurity from being fat shamed and mentally abused but the common emotion that I kept coming back to was anger. I was angry for wasting my time on something that affected me in so many different ways. It got to the point where I was so angry I couldn’t help but to laugh! When you know you’re a dime piece and someone comes along and screws you over, you just have to laugh because what an “L” that person took, am I right?! I want women to know that no matter what we go through to never forget who we are and what we are capable of. Sometimes all we need is some sugar, white wine, and back to being superwoman!”
