“We’re very proud of [The Lead],” Stella told Rated R&B in an interview. “It encapsulates us being together, being strong and getting through anything. I think that’s a good message we like to put out for the people who listen.” "For me, the EP literally means taking the lead, being strong in all that you do and being a woman," Renée added.

Jorja said of the process of creating 'Cardboard Box', "It was one of our first sessions with MNEK, who is the most talented person in the world. We was just having a conversation — because usually in the beginning of sessions, you just have a chat about what’s going on in your life at that moment in time. I know it was a bit of a rough time for me.” Renée said, "It was like [creating] a happy breakup song. You know you’re going through a situation, but you still wanna feel good about it.”
