Allie X and Troye Sivan have finally given fans what they want, with the release of a duet together, 'Love Me Wrong', which arrives ahead of Allie's upcoming new album, 'Cape God'.
About the song, Allie says: "Love Me Wrong is a very personal song for me, which deals with the confusion and hurt associated with familial love. Mostly taken from feelings I had when I was younger, this is a song about being misunderstood by the ones closest to you. You know that you they love you, but you feel it isn't for the full person you are. The relationship between a parent and child is so intense and layered, that it was liberating to put it into the simple phrase ‘you love me wrong’ and repeat it over and over in the chorus. I hope that those of you dealing with similar feelings can find solace in this song."
And about Troye, Allie says:
Well guys. The moment many of you have been waiting for. An @alliex @troyesivan duet... Since 2014 I have heard you saying "collab!"... but here's the thing. We have been collaborating.. We've written 2 albums together, we've composed for film. Troye has always supported and lifted me up through all my releases, brought me on tour, helped me find my current manager, and been a friend. He is a very special person. I expect most of you suspect this already- so I'm here to confirm it's true! Anyway- it wasn't until we wrote Love Me Wrong, that I thought we truly had a song that made sense for both of us to sing. Leland, Bram Inscore, Troye and I had set up in a little house on the Pacific Coast Highway and Love Me Wrong poured out of us very quickly while the ocean waves roaring beneath us (which very on point thematically btw). It is a song that means a lot to me. Thank you Troye for lending your voice to one of my favorite songs we've ever written and for everything else. PS THANK YOU @spotifycanada
