Charted: 54
  • The subject of this song is a gorgeous-looking girl who drives other women insane with jealousy. Annie explained the origins of the song to Digital Spy: "Well, a friend of mine is a really great girl who happens to hang out with a lot of guys. One day this other girl came up to her and said, 'You've been spending quite a lot of time with my boyfriend and I don't really like that.' My friend got into a lot of trouble for this, and kept telling me about it, so I thought 'Why don't I write a song about it?'"
  • Annie explained on her website how this song was influenced by Prince. She said: "When I started writing for the album I wanted to be inspired by Prince's 'Kiss,' and while the lyrics came later that's how 'I Know Ur Girlfriend Hates Me' started off."
