On the single Musti states:
“During the process of making my album «Qoyskayga», Beyonce had just dropped the album «Lion King-The Gift», and one track on that album quickly became my favorite. “My Power” featuring Tierra Whack, Nija, Yemi Alade, Busiswa, MoonChild Sanelly and DJ Lag. After that I listened to alot of AfroBeat and Afropop music, which really inspired me and my producers to make this track.«Lion king» is a homage to every female artists and athlete with african descent. And special s/o to my mom who came through with the middle eight part of the song.” – Musti
