In an interview with FACT, published on Friday, Elliott discussed her new single her future plans, which include an upcoming documentary on her career. In response to a question about a potential album in the works, Elliott said that she has "at least five, six albums of music, but it’s blackmail music that I would never put out."

She continued, "I got enough records to make an album, but I would never say a day or time that it would happen because those fans are brutal and they will stone me if I told a date and it didn’t drop on that date. I have learned my lesson from other artists go through that. The element of surprise works for me."
