I feel like holding this right now, I’m holding this for all of us, especially us girls. So, I’m very thankful for this and I’m thankful for Jay Joyce, who has three albums in this category with Ashley, Brandy and myself. And all the songwriters and musicians that made Wildcard what it is and this tattoo that inspired it.
