On Thursday, Kaitlyn dropped her debut single and opened up about the vulnerability and fear she felt before releasing it.
She wrote on Instagram as a caption to a clip of the song, "If I’m being honest, I didn’t think I would ever release this song. I was too afraid, insecure, and kept doing the classic 'what if'. I don’t know who needs to hear this but f*ck the what if’s. This uncertain time has shed light on how important time is."
Kaitlyn explained the song "has been collecting dust for over a year," she felt like she finally reached a point where she was ready to share it with the world.
"Singing has always been something that makes my heart happy," she posited. "So if I’m being honest, Im still feeling insecure, yet PROUD to share this with you now. I even think we can all relate to the lyrics right now."
