The group which was been known for major releases including ‘Melanin’ and ‘Short and Sweet’ have spearheaded a conversation around the dynamics of relationships hardly explored openly with their new single. The group members opened up about their insecurities, with Bien noting that as a teenager he felt like a weakling, often taunted as ‘skeleton’ for his frail, slim frame. He also noted that though he might be newly married and happy, he was worried he was not “doing enough to bring home the bread for my wife…or doing enough to make her happy.”
