Love U Betta

Album: Beg, Borrow and Steal (2012)
  • After contributions to Kesha's "Blah Blah Blah" and 3OH!3's "Follow Me Down," plus a guest spot on Gym Class Heroes' "Ass Back Home," the English singer-songwriter Neon Hitch finally found some success under her own name with this song. The lead single, from the songstress' debut album, Beg, Borrow and Steal, it became her first #1 as a solo artist when the tune hit the top of the Dance Club Songs chart in its sixth week.
  • This Benny Blanco-produced Electro-Pop song was penned by Hitch with Benjamin Levin and Lauren Christy. It finds the singer asserting her feminine power. "I wrote ["Love U Betta"] with my friend Lauren Christy after I had broken up with a boyfriend, who had told me that he started dating a model. I was like, 'Yeah, she's prettier than I'll ever be, but can she do it like me?'" she recalled to Billboard magazine. "Then we gave it to Benny, and Benny was freaking out over it."
  • The album track is titled "F--k U Betta," so when you hear this song being played on the radio it will most likely be this censored version.
  • Hitch filmed a steamy video to accompany the song. She explained she did so as revenge to her former boyfriend: "It's quite raunchy," the singer admitted to AOL Music. "The song is called "F--- You Betta" so I needed a raunchy video to go with the raunchy song. I wanted to make something beautiful. It's for my ex boyfriend - it's about him - dedicated to him."
