Break Up To Make Up

  • Lyrics
  • This was the third single taken from American R&B singer Jeremih's self-titled debut album.
  • Jeremih explained to This is RnB how he comes up with the ideas for his songs: "Sometimes I have a concept in my mind, sometimes I already know where I want to go. But usually for the most part, we pretty much start from scratch with the snap of my fingers. While creating a track, I began to hear as if the music speaks to me, as crazy as that sounds. (Laughs). I went with what the beats told me, and that's how we were able to knock out a lot of the records, and pretty much have the beats match a lot with the way I was singing because even when it came to drops. For instance, in 'Break Up to Make Up' with the birds chirping in the 2nd verse coming in, you know, it went hand in hand. We're doing pretty much everything organically, so that's how it was created."
