Juice WRLD & Ellie Goulding Team Up For Anti-Love Song “Hate Me”

Listen to Ellie Goulding & Juice WRLD’s new record “Hate Me.”

Following up last week’s BTS-collab “All Night,” Chicago artist Juice WRLD decides to come through today and assist Ellie Goulding on her new single “Hate Me.”

Produced by Jason Evigan & The Monsters and Strangerz, the anti-love song finds Ellie taking a darker approach addressing her past relationship. “Erase me, Erase me, wish you never date me,” she sings on the chorus, while Juice WRLD brings his sad-boy persona to the forefront, accusing his ex-lover of “playing mind games” and “damaging his brain.”

“I love how this song is a bit tongue in cheek, it’s definitely lyrically different to most of my other songs but it’s fun to play around a bit,” said Goulding.

Off Ellie’s upcoming fourth studio album Flux, take a listen to the new record and let us know what you think! Record available on iTunes.

Quotable Lyrics:

Hate me, hate me, tell me how you hate me
Tell me how I’m trash and you could easily replace me
Tell me that I’m strung out, wasted on the daily
Prolly ’cause there’s no one around me numbin’ all my pain
Prolly ’cause there’s no umbrella to shield me from all the rain
Probably because you’re the one playin’ the mind games
You hate me because I don’t let you play no mind games
They give me migraines and damage my brain

– Juice WRLD

Ty Dolla $ign Strips It Back With Serpentwithfeet On “Receipts”

Cover

Ty Dolla $ign tries out a new sound.

Baltimore native, serpentwithfeet, born Josiah Wise, has released a new song with an unanticipated, but surprisingly complimentary, collaborator: Ty Dolla $ign. The single, titled “Receipts” is in line with serpentwithfeet’s previous work which involves experimental, yet carefully structured R&B songs. The artist’s Wiki page boasts a plethora of widely spaced-out genres in which he dabbles in, including electronic, gospel, experimental, r&B, and neo-soul. So it’s pretty fascinating to see Ty flex his musicality into this context, when usually it’s being employed on Top 40 pop songs or blockbuster rap records. The song is serpentwithfeet’s first new music since the release of his significant 2018 LP Soil.

The song is narrative, with Wise and Ty dueting as its two protagonists. Wise explained how the song came about in a statement: “I began writing ‘Receipts’ when I first moved to Los Angeles last summer, I played an early demo for Ty Dolla $ign and he asked to join me on the track. This song carries a lot of weight for me because it’s a snapshot of two brothers rhapsodizing about unforeseen romance. Ty is a huge part of my LA story so ‘Receipts’ feels like a perfect document.” The song is serpentwithfeet’s first new music since the release of his significant 2018 LP Soil.

Quotable Lyrics:

Was it the hummingbird, that gave you the word?
Or the father of three, that poured the tea?
Who gave you permission to beg me?
Was it the doorman, that gave you my floorplan?
Or the anthems of hope that populate the morning?
