Discussing his decision to work again with the Peruvian producer, Robert said: “During the global pandemic, I took the opportunity to look back through my catalogue and release a bunch of reissues and remasters. When I listened to “Over”, I felt it was a song that had never reached its full potential – the lyric and melody is one of my favourites I’ve written, but the production fell short”.
He added: “Since we were in lockdown, and I was experiencing monumental growth in my streams – up by 743% on Spotify – I felt that it was important to release something, but quality control is important to me, so I decided to take something I thought already had the makings of a great song and allow Skynem GT to work his magic”.
Robert also revealed the track is lyrically a prequel to "Older '20", explaining: "It's about the same relationship, the one you build-up in your head as being "it", and then you get stuck in the friend zone!"
