Hearteater

Album: Bad Vibes Forever (2019)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • Released posthumously, this song finds XXXTentacion singing about how a former girlfriend broke his heart. His ex is portrayed as being "filled with poison." In other words, she was a toxic lover.
  • It is likely X is referring to his past tumultuous romance with Geneva Ayala. The rapper-singer was arrested in October 2016 after she accused him of physical and verbal abuse. He protested his innocence and was released under house arrest.
  • Ayala is featured on both the cover art and music video to "Hearteater."
  • X's heartbreak over the breakdown of their relationship is a prime topic on his first two studio albums, 17 and ?; this theme shows up on the tracks "Sad!" and "Changes."
  • LA-based songwriter John Cunningham's production features soft acoustic guitars, a contrast to the hard-hitting sound that XXXTentacion usually rapped over.
