The resurfaced track

Addressing the resurfaced song, Doja said, 'it was in no way tied to anything outside of my own personal experience.'

She claimed, 'It was written in response to people who often use that term to hurt me.'

'I made an attempt to flip its meeting but recognize that it was a bad decision to use the term in my music.'
