In April, she scored some major writing credits on Beyoncé's Lemonade, including "Sorry," "Daddy Lessons," and "Don't Hurt Yourself." But on "The Legend Of," Gordon focuses on her new creative beginning with a self-awareness. She sings in a soulful blend of alternative vocals, showing her diverse sound with a certain confidence.

Over email with The FADER, Gordon explained the song, "I've never been comfortable stating my value or saying 'I am exceptional.' Humility and fear have always been my biggest vice." She continued, "'The Legend Of' is a tiny cliff note of stories from my life. It blends music I enjoy, the unique tones that make up my voice and is a celebration of my achievements and lessons I've learned disguised as failures."

Take a listen and read an honest poem written by Gordon, below.
