The new song is from G-Eazy's upcoming fourth studio album, 'These Things Happen Too'.
Demi Lovato and G-Eazy are addressing their past problems in the brand new music video for their anticipated collaboration, "Breakdown", which was released by the 32-year-old rapper on Thursday night.
The clip, which comes a few months after G-Eazy's split from Ashley Benson, begins with a montage of some real-life headlines and controversies that the two musicians have been involved in during their prolific careers —including Lovato's 2018 overdose and G Eazy's numerous legal troubles.
The track delves into both artists' struggles with mental health and past traumas, which ultimately led them to some really dark places, as G-Eazy raps in the opening lines from his first verse:
"Been fighting my demons, but they ain't fighting fair/ But I keep saying 'Everything's alright, I swear'/ All alone in a dark space, ain't no light in there/ What's f**ked up is I might actually like it there."
"I got big plans, but none of them feel like mine", sings Lovato. "And I miss days where I used to feel like me/ Cause I've been trapped in all the freedom/ Throw my heart up at the ceiling/ I take another drink so I can hear the voice of reason/ I got big plans, but none of them feel like mine."
The hitmakers had been teasing their collab since early August, sharing photos of one another at photo shoots and behind-the-scenes snapshots from the music video for "Breakdown". The song is off G-Eazy's upcoming fourth studio album, which is titled These Things Happen Too and drops on September 24.
