"Messy In Heaven" starts off in eye-raising fashion as Venbee imagines Jesus Christ taking cocaine. As the heavenly dance track progresses, the singer pictures the Son of God exhausted and crushed after ministering to people daily from dawn to dusk. He gets little sleep and is at a breaking point.
Venbee said "Messy in Heaven" is not a "religious song, or meant to offend anyone. It's simply about how some of the best people put others before themselves. As a result of this, sometimes they fall into a downward spiral."
Venbee wrote "Messy In Heaven" with the song's producer, Andrew Goddard, along with Dan Fable and Tao Goddard. The night before the session with her three co-writers, she "had a dream of Jesus walking down the high street looking very intoxicated." Venbee told her co-writers about the dream and the song wrote itself.
Venbee previously collaborated with Manchester-based singer-songwriter Dan Fable on her breakthrough single "Low Down." British Drum & Bass artist and producer Andrew Goddard is best known for his 2021 single "Nicotine."
