Speaking to the Recording Academy, Black Coffee said he was intentional about making an album that can compete at an international level.

“It was intentional to create an album that would be recognised on this level, being someone who comes from Africa or South Africa where most of our artists are always categorised together – whether on African or world music thing, so I was very intentional about what I wanted to do with this album where it would compete on an international level with people that I think are my peers.”
