She learned to ice skate to portray the younger version of Tonya Harding in the biopic I, Tonya, describing it as the “most challenging role” she’d ever undertaken.

While not originally written for Ghostbusters: Afterlife, the song was eventually added to the film’s soundtrack and used for the closing credits. When asked, Grace explained that the song was written during a rough period of her life in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, and that one “could take it as a breakup song, but it could also be about a friend or a family member or any kind of relationship that’s ended.”
