With its moody vibe and hard-hitting, relatable lyrics, there was no question that anyone listening would feel an instant connection to both the song and its singer — and that’s exactly what Miranda was hoping for.
“I just hope that everybody that hears it can kinda feel like they’re not on an island,” she told Sony Music. “That we all have things in our life that aren’t necessary pleasant to talk about, but this song is just honest as you can get about emotions, and letting raw emotions live where they live until you move on to a happier place. It’s kinda the cycle of life, we can’t all be sunshine and roses everyday and sometimes when we’re not we find things that make us feel better at the moment and that’s what a vice is.”
Personally, I think it’s safe to say she achieved just that.
Miranda also wanted to make sure her fans know that the song came from a place of pure honesty and heartbreak.
“I think when you go through something in your life that’s hard, you learn what you run to, and what you run from, and sometimes that comes full circle,” she continued. “It’s a very clear image of somebody that’s willing to just lay it our there and be honest.”
You go, girl.
