Background and compositionEdit

Originally, Milian planned to release a mixtape album titled #TinaTurnUp[2] while waiting to release an album on Young Money Entertainment. Previously, she had appeared on the Stafford Brothers single "Hello," the compilation album Young Money: Rise of an Empire and on Lil' Wayne's single "Start a Fire" for the label. Eventually, she set out to release a 5-track EP titled Like Me alongside a visual album complete with music videos shot for each one,[3] set for an October 30, 2015 release.[4] However, it was changed shortly after into a 4-track release titled 4U and pushed back to December 4, 2015.[5]
