“I’ve been listening to a lot of Dua Lipa because my goal is to grow how she did. This song is about social media. I’m making references to social media terms like ‘follow me’ ‘likes’ ‘trending’ etc. It is basically about making others happy by constantly posting on social media but feeling like you’re losing a part of yourself.” – Shenna
