“Hate Me” was written by the Track45 siblings Ben, Jenna and KK Johnson alongside Hunter Phelps (Chase Rice, Cole Swindell). The group also co-produced the track alongside Jason Hall (Little Big Town, Orville Peck) and is a toe tapper from the jump.
We have all been there, stuck in the never-ending back and forth of a situationship or trying to get over your biggest heartbreak.
“We wrote this song as a musical slap in the face to help KK get over a guy she was hung up on,” says Track45. “This is the perfect song to scream-sing in your car to that person you wish would hate you so it’s easier to move on.”
Today, country music is missing the beautiful harmonies of days past. Yet, Track45's perfectly placed ones on "Hate Me" are hard to ignore. Each sibling shines in their own way throughout the breakup tune, then comes together in such an effortless way in the angsty chorus.
“Tell me that you never want to see me again // That you don’t even wanna be friends // You don’t care what I do // You don’t care where I’ve been // Cause I’ve been, holding on to something broke, when I oughta be letting go // Next time it’s late and you’re all alone // Picking up your phone // I wish you’d call me up and tell me that you hate me // I wish I’d hear you found somebody to replace me”
All accomplished songwriters in their own right, Track45's songwriting shines in this tune and allowing fans to connect their own life to the song. Hate Me is the perfect marriage of strong lyricism and flawless collaboration. We are so pumped to see what this sibling trio does next!
