"It took about a year because we changed the song so many times," Max recently told Billboard. "I wanted to make it about female empowerment and inequality, so I was taking my time with it. I'm a crazy perfectionist; If I don't feel it in my bones, I'm not going to release it. I've been in five different studios for this song in Europe and Los Angeles. I'm happy I was patient."
