Songfacts®:

  • New York-based singer-songwriter Leah Kate began posting music to her self-titled YouTube channel in September 2018. In 2021, she released her first EP, What Just Happened? This song became her first charting single after being released on March 23, 2022.
  • Here, Leah Kate has caught her boyfriend cheating. Though she's angry, she still has feelings for the dude, so she makes a list to remind herself of everything she hates about him.
  • Lyrically this is very much a retread of the 2008 Miley Cyrus hit "7 Things." In both songs, the last thing on the list is that the guy made the singer love him.
  • Kate wrote the song with Madi Yanofsky (Nessa Barrett's "I Hope Ur Miserable Until Ur Dead," Jessie Murph's "Look Who's Cryin Now") and Canadian producer Mike Wise, who also helped Kate pen her What Just Happened? track "F U Anthem."
