The lyrics to Better People to Leave On Read are incredibly striking and vulnerably honest. They were written in a fit of rage when Emei’s ex-best friend (who made moves on her boyfriend) texted saying she was proud of her success. Emei channeled that anger and sadness into a powerful message for anyone who has ever felt betrayed. The song is a reminder that you deserve better than people who only want to use you or take advantage of your generosity.
KiNG MALA producer, Rob Auerbach, helped Emei bring the song to life with hard-hitting drums and eye-rolling horns. It has the makings of an infectious hit without being overly cliché. EMEI’s voice carries the whole track exceptionally well, and we would definitely recommend listening to this song!
