In a recent interview with SiriusXM radio, Louis opened up about the death of his mother, Johanna Deakin, who lost her battle with leukemia in December. “Just Hold On” is dedicated to her.
“It’s not something that I feel 100 percent comfortable talking too much about, but just quickly, when I first found out the news I kind of did want to throw the towel in,” he shared. “But it was my mum who said to me that I’ve just got to keep going. She told me very sternly that she wanted me to.”
