Album: yet to be titled (2022)

Songfacts®:

  • Toronto, Canada singer-songwriter ThxSoMuch combines hip-hop with indie punk. "Spit In My Face" is his first worldwide hit.
  • Over rough and raunchy sonics, ThxSoMuch snarls love-fueled rage about a dangerous love. Rather than walking out on his toxic paramour, the singer finds comfort in his pain. So intense are his emotions that even if she were to spit in his face, it would not alter his feelings for her.
  • Written by ThxSoMch with producer Grayskies, the Canadian singer first previewed the track on TikTok as a snippet on October 8, 2022. It blew up a week later and ThxSoMch released "Spit In My Face" as a single on November 1, 2022. The song entered the singles charts in various countries in early January 2023, after the Christmas songs disappeared.
