Bragga first announced the project in early 2024 as an EP dedicated to AKA’s memory. However, the creative process took a turn. In an interview on YFM, Nadia Nakai shared that she decided not to use her upcoming album as a tribute to AKA, as she prefers to keep her grief private.

Speaking about what her fans should expect from her body of work, Nadia said; “The things that I’ve gone through these past couple of years have been hectic and I feel like I’ve been very resilient. I couldn’t let things just come like take me down and not be able to get up again. But I feel like that’s what women have naturally in them, to keep fighting, to keep pushing in all aspects of their lives. So I’m like this album is really that.”

Nadia initially announced her project as an EP and later felt compelled to turn it into a tribute album for AKA. However, she has since decided to take a different direction. The album will now focus on celebrating her resilience and honouring women in general. Explaining her decision to change the album’s focus, Nadia said:

“It did start as a tribute album for Kiernan but I just decided not to do that anymore because I wanna keep my grief to myself. People ask me ‘why did you remove his profile picture on Instagram and I’m like because it is no longer for you guys anymore, it never was but at the beginning you do things, you post pictures, but I feel like it’s not for people anymore to know where I’m at and how I’m feeling because they have too many opinions on what they think I should do and how I should be doing things. So I’m no longer doing that with that album and also it’s just too hectic to talk about it over and over, so I’m in a different space, I’m healing.”
