Noah went on to express appreciation for everyone who worked on the album with her.

"this is such an honor and i am in utter shock," she wrote. "thank you so much from the bottom of my heart i truly can't believe it my mind is going a thousand miles a minute and i am beyond grateful and full of love and gratitude. i know my grandma is looking down on me and this is from her. thank you mammie i wish you could be here for this."
