Maria's notes about the cover:
" After hearing Robyn perform "Call Your Girlfriend" on SNL, I knew I wanted to do something with it. I wanted to flip it on its head, and hear the other woman's words come out of the girlfriend's mouth as she confronts her boyfriend. I wanted to humanize the girlfriend, and have her unleash the lyrics onto the listener. I wanted her to have a voice. So, I thought of my version of "Call Your Girlfriend" as the continuation of Robyn's story--the never-before-heard epilogue of the girl who got burned. The result was the transformation of a dance classic into a soulful contemporary RnB ballad. I hope it gives you the same feels I had while recording it!"
