Grimes, who parted ways with her billionaire boyfriend Elon Musk in September 2021, has apparently taken a dig at him with her new single, ‘Player of Games’. The song released on her official YouTube channel with a lyric video talks about the SpaceX boss by dubbing him as the greatest gamer but a lousy boyfriend.
 
The 33-year-old crooner had announced the track a few days ago on her official Instagram account but her fans were clueless about her plans to take a dig at Elon. Grimes and Elon Musk dated for three years and also share a son together named X Æ A-12, aka 'Baby X'. Grimes, whose real name is Claire Elise Boucher, is known for including dream pop, electronic, R&B, and hip hop in her music. Social media users too took to Twitter as soon as they heard the new single from Grimes.

Did Grimes take a dig at Elon Musk in the new single?

Grimes, in the new song, croons, Sail away, To the cold expanse of space/ Even love, Couldn't keep you in your place/ But can't you love me/ Like that?/ Can't you need me, Like that?”. In another verse, the singer wrote, “If I loved him any less/ I'd make him stay/ But he has to be the best/Player of games/ If I loved him any less/ I'd make him stay.”

Grimes singing “I’m in love with the greatest gamer” refers to Elon Musk’s love for video games. And her singing about space is another dig she took at one of the richest men in the world as we are all aware of his Mars mission and space-related projects. Speaking of their relationship, Elon Musk had confirmed their split in an interview with Page Six, “We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms.” He added, “It’s mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas and her work is primarily in LA. She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room.” The former couple was last papped at Met Gala 2021 where Grimes made a solo appearance on the red carpet as Elon joined her later inside the venue.



 



 

‘Elon Musk just got Swifted by Grimes’

Social media users rushed to Twitter after checking out Grimes’ new single as one of them said, “Shes pushing 40 shes not a teen anymore.” Another user posted, “Song lyrics are a window to one’s heart who can blame her?”  One user tweeted, “I guess she's not longer going to live in Mars after all.”
 
The next one shared, “Worst songwriting I have ever seen after Ariana.”  Meanwhile, another posted, “He will look after her and his son forever, as long as she doesn't do something really stupid.” One user said, “Tell her to stop making basic a** EDM. She’s better than this. So much better.” Another said, “Grimes is coming for Elon Musk with ‘Player of Games’ and I love it. So glad I don’t have to play Rocket League just to hear this song anymore”, as one user concluded, “Elon Musk just got Swifted by Grimes.”
