“It’s a reminder to myself,” Diggy tells VIBEof the new album. “A positive affirmation to myself and to other people just to not take yourself too seriously […] I feel like in that process of us becoming better people and becoming better at our crafts, we have to lighten up and not be so hard on ourselves.”
That mentality carries over throughout the track listing and is especially amplified on “Love Yourself,” which arrives in the second half of the album as Diggy challenges woman of interest to appreciate who she is in juxtaposition to society’s social media’s standards of beauty. The same jazzy undertones are present in this cut as Diggy continues to push a smoother delivery on Lighten Up.
