  • Lyrics
  • This slice of brat-pop finds Charli bashing her former lover. "That song is really brutal - every time I sing it I feel bad for everyone of my ex-boyfriends," she told NME.

    "I feel like I'm making all the guys I ever dated cry," Charli added. "Which I kind of like."
  • Charli XCX said on Live From MTV that this jam was inspired by the Violent Femmes 1994 track "Breakin' Up."
