He recalls the tears shed over the ending of the relationship from the perspective of someone is no longer wounded by emotional trauma brought on by the situation. The irony being that the tables have now turned and it is now his ex love interest who cannot bare to be without him.

Bringing together elements of R&B, hip-hop and 00s electro-pop, its synth filled rhythms are catchy hook are bound to have you singing along.
If you listen closely enough you may just hear some beatboxing during the instrumental breakdown.

When asked about the concept behind the video LX Mason revealed:
“I wanted to show the lengths that someone would go to forget you. If you notice, all of the shots where there’s supposed to be two people, it’s just her. Shes successfully removed someone from memory and it takes going to a darker place to get there”
