Tiffany Young released her single “Over My Skin” in June, and now the pop star is giving Billboard a look at her inspiration for the song.
“’Over My Skin’ was written in the sense of I’m finally feeling comfortable in my own skin,” Young tells Billboard‘s Chelsea Briggs. “I think it’s for everybody who is feeling liberated or taking control or just wanting to own who they are, or wanting to be a queen.”
Behind-the-scenes shots show clips from the video, which came out last week just as Young celebrated her 29th birthday. In it, Young becomes “Professor T” and serves up some life lessons.
“I’m very much inspired by the, kind of growing up and being a woman and owning who you are, my inner Carrie Bradshaw,” she adds. “This song is absolutely the whole, you know, ‘Enjoy Being a Woman’ song.”
Tiffany Young grew up in Los Angeles and moved to South Korea as a young adult to pursue a career in South Korea. In 2007, she became one of the members of Girls’ Generation, one of K-pop’s most prominent girl groups of all time. After leaving her former label SM Entertainment last year, she returned to pursue music Stateside. “Over My Skin” is her first original English-language single.
