In the process of creating Cry, I was reminded that it is okay to feel low and to be in touch with your vulnerability. I suppressed my anger for too long towards people that hurt me and this song allowed the wall that I built to be broken. It’s okay to Cry even though you don’t wanna. – Armand Joubert
