Speaking about the song, Sjana Rut said, 
I wrote ‘Unbreakable’ in 2018 during the trials of me and my brother’s sexual abuse case, the abuser was a child service worker. But I was also experiencing a lot of harassment from family members and outsiders because of another abuse case, where I was sexually abused by a close family member as a child as well. The abuse case regarding the child service worker got a lot of media attention in Iceland, it was really tough to go online or even look at the papers, it was everywhere. People I knew were talking about it without knowing that my brother and I were the victims of that case. I wrote this song at a time when I needed to remind myself of who I was and of my strength and confidence, at a time when I needed it the most. The song isn’t about the abuse itself, but rather that no matter what was thrown my way or said about me, it would never break me or change who I am. Whatever you say won’t change me, what whatever you do won’t break me ‘cause I am Unbreakable”.
