G-Eazy and Demi Lovato collaborated on a song for the very first time. The two were also rumored to be dating after they were spotted leaving a club while holding hands in March 2020. The news made headlines after the rapper’s split with singer Halsey. Despite the gossip, nothing ever got official between G-Eazy and Demi Lovato.

Speaking of the song, the music video starts with Internet headlines as they recall their troubled past. Shedding light on the same, Lovato opens the track with soulful lyrics, “I got big plans, but none of them feel like mine/ 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 kill the voice of reason/ I got big plans, but none of them feel like mine.” The 32-year-old rapper, who usually drops funky tracks, opted for deep lyrics here as he shared his personal issues on the song. “You know/ Been fighting my demons, but they ain't fighting fair/ But I keep saying that "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.” For the unversed, the single ‘Breakdown’ was first previewed in the trailer for the Netflix series ‘Titletown High’.
