While introducing the song during On Air with Ryan Seacrest, Cyrus said the song was for her fans and that she had been "waiting for this moment for months now."
“Everyone always judges and say what they want," Cyrus said describing the song. "But my fans have really stood by me no matter what I’ve been through…and this is a song that says where I’m at in my life right now.”
The track, which was produced by Mike WiLL Made It, is the first single of the 20-year-old's as-of-now untitled fourth studio album set to come out in the fall.
