Songfacts®:

  • The most vulnerable track on I Never Liked You, "Love You Better" finds Future's heart broken in two after his girl breaks up with him. The ATL lothario is renowned for breaking other people's hearts, but this time he gets a taste of his own medicine. He both chastises his ex (for "takin' our memories on love and treatin' it like gossip") while gracefully hoping she can find someone to love her better than he did.
  • Australian production duo FnZ and Atlanta producer ATL Jacob created the beat. They also supplied the instrumentation for Future's Drake collaboration "Wait For U."
  • The melancholic ballad incorporates a chopped-vocal sample of Atlanta R&B singer Jayla Darden's 2018 song "Idea 686."
