The hot new track follows the +50 million streaming success of his last release “NUMB” and furthers his growing appeal to massive audiences that share the pain, irony, humor and frustration of failed relationships. Of the record and its edgy and comedic video, Gates shares,  “The music video was written from the reverse perspective of the song and it debuts the psychological turmoil that can be caused by being in love with somebody and having that love end. It showcases my co-star’s downfall and reliving her memories while trying to figure out what is going on and how to get past the break up.”
