Iman took inspiration from her mother for some of the Prince looks. Jordan said, "She showed us pictures of her mom in the Afro, and when she put it on, it was as if we moved into the future and flashed back to the past." Yacine Diallo, a makeup artist for the shoot, said that the shoot was not only a tribute to Prince, but also the women in his life. "The story was also a tribute to all the talented, beautiful, and sexy women like Vanity 6, Sheila E., Wendy, and Lisa he had on stage with him throughout his career. Chanel Iman was perfect to interpret this sensuality and freedom that always inspired me while growing up watching Prince videos and listening to his music."
