The South African-born singer-songwriter (now living in The Netherlands) is shaping things up, complementing her preceding Alternative-Pop repertoire with this poised Rock song, starting “this year I will be focussing on Rock, so be ready as it’s going to be a wild ride!”

Cindy-Louise adds:

“This song is emotional for me, but also fun. Whilst I am letting the listener into the difficult and heart-wrenching part of my life, it also has a Western vibe with a Rock kick. It's all about the attitude, and I'm giving you plenty of it.

I wrote it in ire but with some humour, so when you hear the hum in the beginning, all I can think about is how I shake my head in disbelief… just because I work for you, does not mean that you I am a slave, and I won't obey your every command. I have a voice which needs to be heard. I am tired of the fake niceness in this world. Just be straight with me about how you feel.

The verse ‘think you're so clever, think I'm so sweet’ is especially influential, because although I may be sweet and more than capable, does not mean you can walk all over me or take advantage of me. The verse ‘don't bother coming back to me’ is totally my personality, as I can tolerate a lot and I am an understanding person, but once you've crossed that line where you have upset me and taken advantage of me, you become nothing to me."
