In an interview with Q103 Albany, Brink explained that "Ritual" is less sexualized than previous albums: "I wanted to show people, and definitely women, a different side of strength in me that was a really powerful force in me that didn't need the sexual part. So there's definitely a more serious overtone...a more serious, deeper side of us."
