"It can be so many things, and that's why it has taken on a life of its own. It can be a love song, it can be love for anything. But it also is very marketable and it has different trajectories depending on who is singing it and why they are singing it." - Holly Knight (songwriter)
''When you've finally found something that's the masterpiece of whatever it is, 'The Best' really describes that. Part of me was writing it as a love song because I had someone in mind that I was writing it for, but we had no clue it was going to be a song that made the kind of impact that it did. It's one of those rare gems that's a positive song, and it's not cheesy. But the hard part is to write something in a positive mode that really is sincere - that's a tall order." - Holly Knight (songwriter)
''I always liked edgier artists. Tina’s an edgy artist because she’s got such a uniquely raspy voice—not your typical technically proficient singer. She’s just got so much personality and character, so it’s fun writing for her.'' - Holly Knight (songwriter)
