“This song is special because its about a toxic relationship but its subject is able to be interpreted in two ways. On one hand, it’s written about an addiction to Nicotine and how unhealthy and frustrating that is. But it’s also written from the perspective of someone in a toxic romantic relationship. Both are characterized by the desperation of someone who knows they’re addicted to something terrible for them. The first line I heard for the song was “I love that I hate that I love that I hate.” I think it perfectly sums up the “on again, off again” element of a toxic relationship. Lyrically, it’s on some cheeky s–t. Sonically, it’s balanced out with what might be my heaviest, hardest-hitting production to date.”
