On Thursday, the singer revealed that the video and song, which features Kanye West and John Legend, was dedicated to Leonard. In a series of tweets he wrote, “Never had a song like this be a single, it’s different then what’s on radio, but I feel it’s needed w/ a the craziness goin on right now. Know it’s hard to imagine me not cursing on a song/single… But honestly I’m proud to have a song so heartfelt n real to me be 1 of my singles n not just a album song.”
He continued on Twitter, “I promised myself only music from the heart from now on when I made this album… I hope my grandma is looking down smiling on me right now. Because the struggles she went through to become a female black captain in WW2, one of the 1 st female black officers in Detroit, a teacher/counselor, and amazing mom/grandma were too great for this song not to be a single.”
