“Cleopatra” was inspired by the Black Lives Matter protests. The song speaks of confidence and social unrest, with lyrics like, “They say I’m scary, I’m not ladylike, I act like a queen/And I’ll be wearing the crown whilst I’ll be kissing my teeth, yeah/Blacker than the leather that’s holding our boots together/If you rock a different shade, we come under the same umbrella.”

Amy Love spoke about the track in a press release.

“‘Cleopatra’ was written off the back of the Black Lives Matter protests,” Love says. “Attending them made us feel powerful as two mixed-race women in an era where people were suddenly waking up to anti-racists conversations. It's about celebrating who we are and being proud of where we come from. We hope this song encourages people from all walks of life to act and feel the same way too.”
