Case of the ex. On the heels of “His Name Cassius” with Peewee Longway, PARTYNEXTDOOR unleashes a new heartbreaking anthem, “Break Me Down.”
Over airy, trap-inspired R&B production, PND sings about an ex who knew him before his high-profile romances.
“Why you act like you don’t know me before all the Kates, Kylies, and Kehlanis, whoa,” he sings. “Why you do me this way? / Must be how it go when you crack the Drake code.”
Shortly after releasing the track, Party shared a screenshot of an e-mail he appeared to receive from an ex. “I’m not jumping back into anything with you right now,” reads the e-mail. “I need major time apart from you.”
