The Weeknd recorded this synth-laden track for My Dear Melancholy. The EP focuses on the R&B singer's emotions over the ending of past relationships. Here, The Weeknd resorts to copious drugs and mindless sex to numb the pain of his heartbreak.
Ooh, now I know what love is And I know it ain't you for sure You'd rather something toxic So, I poison myself again, again 'Til I feel nothing
As with the rest of My Dear Melancholy, there is speculation as to whether the song relates to The Weeknd's past relationships with model Bella Hadid and/or singer Selena Gomez.
Dear Melancholy's only feature is techno artist Gesaffelstein who produced this track and "Hurt You." The French DJ is best known in the hip-hop world for his co-production credits on Kanye West's Yeezus tracks "Black Skinhead" and "Send It Up."
In Gary Numan's "Cars," the message is that cars lead to a mechanical society devoid of personal interaction. This didn't stop automakers from using it in commercials. Both Nissan and Oldsmobile have used it in ads.
