Discussing the meaning behind the new track, XTIE shares: “We used to be BFFs but suddenly we just grew apart and we can’t find a reason. We used to tell jokes, make fun of each other and share secrets. Now you know all my secrets but we are not friends anymore.
I feel like social media could help make new friends but it sometimes make old friends grow apart, sudden jealousy on how good your life is now, compare this or that scrolling through the stories of our “friends”, we seems to get friend’s recent life updates through IG but not calling up each other to chat anymore.
New friends came into my life as well after I graduated from university, and they easily get jealous of your achievements and they will find ways to let you down. Sometimes it got me thinking, am I a bad friend because I am just too busy to keep updated and stay close with my friends? no time to hang out with them, be patient or listen to their stories anymore?”
