There’s still moments that I call back to my past and remember how former significant others have done me wrong.

The hook that they have incorporated into I Hate My Ex will continue to bounce around listeners’ heads long after the song ceases to play. The bit of rapid-fire patter that separates the two halves of the track is something to behold.
