Songfacts®:

  • Lesley Roy told MTV News why she titled the album after this song. Explained Roy: "I called the album that because it's when I hit rock bottom. It's the question a lot of people ask when they're in a relationship, and it's like 'where was the point where you didn't find me attractive anymore?' It's a universal feeling and an unusual word. A lot of people ask me about it and relate to it. And the world is not perfect right now. Unbeautiful seems like a realistic title for a lot of things that are happening."
