Letter to My Ex

Album: Break Up to Make Up (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This single is from Pleasure P's Break Up to Make Up mixtape, which is a collaboration with friend and supporter DJ Clue. The project is a collection of past unreleased material. "We kind of wanted to put some R&B back into these streets and give people hope again," he explained to The Boombox. "Give people that whole I'm in love type of vibe. And I ain't too rich or too swagged out to say that I'm sorry."
  • This song finds Pleasure P singing of his deepest feelings of longing for his ex-girlfriend. "We all need somebody to speak for us and sometimes songs speak to people when you're just laying in the bed and you might hear my song and you say, 'You know I was really f—ed up to that girl," he explained. "You know let me go make that right.'"

    Pleasure P added, "I just want to take it back to the whole era of treating ladies right and not degrading women."
