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.
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
