The bass-heavy track, which is rumored to be inspired by his relationship that ended a few years ago, finds MGK slamming his ex-girlfriend over the trendy beats. “I wish that I loved you/ Or that I cared/ Or that I’d give a damn if you were here,” he rhymes. “But you’re gone so it’s f**k you/ I’m a player/ I’m everything that you wanted but you’re scared.”
“The Break Up” was not the only breakup anthem that MGK, whose real name is Richard Colson Barker, unveiled this year. Back in April, the “Bad Things” hitmaker “Let You Go”, which is included in his third studio album “”. However, unlike “The Break Up”, the song finds him spitting lines about how he can not move on from his ex-girlfriend.
“I remember when I wrote this it was just me, a guitar and a bad break up,” MGK said of the three-minute song. “I wrote ‘Let You Go’ on my black Martin acoustic last year in my bed. That’s also me playing guitar on the record. I’m so proud of this one.”
It’s been a busy year for MGK. Last month, the 27-year-old rapper premiered for his and -assisted track “Home”, which serves as a soundtrack for Netflix’s movie “”.
Furthermore, he is set to join in Netflix’s thriller movie “”. The movie, which is directed by Susanne Bier with a script written by Eric Heisserer, follows a woman and a pair of children who are blindfolded and then forced to make their way through a post-apocalyptic setting along a river.
