The 32-year-old was addressing her primordial expectations about the single, which saw her flaunt her physic shortly before she eventually birthed her first child with Adekunle Gold, her husband.

“I’ve debated with myself for months on whether or not I should document my personal experience as a working, pregnant woman,” she wrote on Instagram.

“I still haven’t decided, because I’m still trying to navigate my current chemistry with social media.

I've debated with myself for months on whether or not I should document my personal experience as a working, pregnant woman. I still haven't decided, because I'm still trying to navigate my current chemistry with social media. . I'll say this though, making this song was special for me, because it was personal, but I honestly had no idea it would be as huge as it is. I didn't know it would resonate with so many people.
