"To give them more insight into who I was and who I am now, where I've come from and where I still want to go and break down an album that completely changed everything for me." She also explains: "My Life is the album that really bonded me with my fans who have since been along for what turned out to be a crazy ride… Going back and reliving that time and that music felt like an out-of-body experience, but one I'm so humbled by."
