“One of my favorite parts of making this album was getting back in with my brother Mustard and just making hits after hits, like we’ve been doing for the last decade,” the singer and rapper said in a statement. “The song needed the frequency of a strong woman, so I had to call my sis Jhené who came in and killed it like only she can do. ‘By Yourself’ is an ode to all the amazing women, especially all the single women and the single mothers, who do this thing called life on their own. Especially now more than ever. Ladies, if you’re handling your responsibilities by yourself, just know we see you and appreciate you.”
