Heart Attack

Album: Chapter 5 (2012)
Charted: 28 35

Songfacts®:

  • The first single by R&B singer Trey Songz' fifth studio album, Chapter 5, finds him crooning lyrics about a relationship, which both partners find they're unable to break away from. "We're so in too deep, can't think about giving it up, but I never knew love would feel like a heart attack," he cries. The singer adds six angry f-bombs to emphasize this love is the worst pain he's ever had. The song was produced by Benny Blanco and Rico Love and released on March 26, 2012.
  • Songz told Artist Direct the song explores that rocky place in which so many relationships end up, "It's that place you are in when you are in a relationship and you are walking on rocks trying to figure it out, at the breaking point or decide to be together forever," he explained. "Anyone in a real relationship knows that it hurts to stay together, but you don't want to leave."
