Background[edit]

After the departure of Tiffanie Anderson in mid 2009, the group began working on their follow up album after switching from Geffen Records to Universal Music Canada.[1] The album features more of a dance-pop genre while still incorporating hints of R&B.[1] The group explained that they chose to switch genres so that their music would more accurately reflect their musical tastes as well as themselves.[1] During the writing of the album, the girls had a bigger hand this time around explaining, "We got a bigger hand in the creative aspect of this album than the first one. [...] There wasn't a person in the room saying, 'this is what we need it to be.' We got to pick the parts we want to sing [...] the album will reflect more of who we are."[1]
