MXE and JunaSwon created a stunning RnB track that perfectly describes the push and pulls of romance.
"Patience" feels like the little sister to Summer Walker's "Girls Need Love". The song has rich vocals and a very distinct sound. I love the empowered female voice present in the storyline. It is a song about protecting your heart as you try and figure out if the other person really wants to commit to a relationship or just the idea of one. MXE describes the hesitancy to fall until you know someone is there for real.
"I wrote this song when I had little confidence in myself and would question the intentions of anyone who showed romantic interest in me. My initial response would be to use a defense mechanism to try and scare them off, however, if that didn’t work and I felt like I could trust them, the next thing I’d do is ask for patience to allow myself to trust and open up to them. These lyrics are my honest feelings in regards to people who see me as their next potential girlfriend, asking the question ‘how much effort are you willing to put in to have me?’"
