Juice WRLD’s second album, released in March, Death Race for Love, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200; He promoted the album with a video for “Hear Me Calling” and sat down with Rolling Stone in early June for a installment of our “First Time” series.

 

The Saam Farahmand-directed clip showcases the artists navigating contentious splits in a technological, social media-dominated world, where every move can have public-facing consequences. As Goulding opens with the push-and-pull chorus, where hatred, lingering desire and a wish to obliterate a relationship from the mind altogether intertwine, a shot of a cell phone is seen, where Goulding’s photos are being quickly deleted. Later she swipes at the camera, as if to delete any lingering memories.

 

 

“The truth of the matter is that humans are crazy and do fucked up things to people, and that’s the truth,” Goulding told Beats 1. “I realized that I can always try and wear these rose-tinted glasses when it comes to my own past relationships or my friends’ relationships, but actually when it comes down to it some things are just really messed up. Sometimes I think you need to hear that. You need to hear it…to sort of validate your own situation, and it happens a lot. I played it to Juice Wrld, he loved it and wanted to be involved.”

[Chorus: Ellie Goulding]
Hate me, hate me, still tryna replace me
Chase me, chase me, tell me how you hate me
Erase me, ‘rase me, wish you never dated me
Lies, tell me lies, baby, tell me how you hate me

[Verse 1: Ellie Goulding]
I bet you don’t kiss her with your eyes closed
I bet you’re still walkin’ on a tightrope
Miss me so much, you’ve been goin’ psycho
You ain’t gotta say it, baby, I know

[Pre-Chorus: Ellie Goulding]
It’s a thin line between all this love and hate
And if you switch sides, you’re gon’ have to claim your place
So baby, this time you’re gon’ have to seal your fate
Yeah baby, this time you’re gon’ have to seal your fate

 

[Chorus: Ellie Goulding]
And tell me how you hate me, hate me, still tryna replace me
Chase me, chase me, tell me how you hate me
Erase me, ‘rase me, wish you never dated me
Lies, tell me lies, baby, tell me how you hate me
Hate me, hate me, still tryna replace me
Chase me, chase me, tell me how you hate me
Erase me, ‘rase me, wish you never dated me
Lies, tell me lies, baby, tell me how you hate me

[Verse 2: Juice WRLD]
Hate me, hate me, tell me how you hate me
Tell me how I’m trash and you could easily replace me
Tell me that I’m strung out, wasted on the daily
Prolly ’cause there’s no one around me numbin’ all my pain
Prolly ’cause there’s no umbrella to shield me from all the rain
Probably because you’re the one playin’ the mind games
You hate me because I don’t let you play no mind games
They give me migraines and damage my brain
Date me, break me, easily replace me
Hopefully you see it clear, hopefully it’s HD
Bet you wonder why the last few months I’ve been spacey
In your head, I sing…

[Chorus: Ellie Goulding with Juice WRLD]
And tell me how you hate me, hate me, still tryna replace me
Chase me, chase me, tell me how you hate me
Erase me, ‘rase me, wish you never dated me
Lies, tell me lies, baby, tell me how you hate me
Hate me, hate me, still tryna replace me
Chase me, chase me, tell me how you hate me
Erase me, ‘rase me, wish you never dated me
Lies, tell me lies, baby, tell me how you hate me

[Pre-Chorus: Ellie Goulding]
It’s a thin line between all this love and hate (Okay)
And if you switch sides, you’re gon’ have to claim your place (Okay)
So baby, this time you’re gon’ have to seal your fate (Okay)
Yeah baby, this time you’re gon’ have to seal your fate (Okay)

[Chorus: Ellie Goulding with Juice WRLD]
And tell me how you hate me, hate me, still tryna replace me
Chase me, chase me, tell me how you hate me
Erase me, ‘rase me, wish you never dated me
Lies, tell me lies, baby, tell me how you hate me
Tell me how you hate me, hate me, still tryna replace me
Chase me, chase me, tell me how you hate me
Erase me, ‘rase me, wish you never dated me
Lies, tell me lies, baby, tell me how you hate me

[Outro: Juice WRLD with Ellie Goulding]
Tell me how you hate me
Lies, tell me lies, tell me how you hate me
Tell me how you hate me
Lies, tell me lies, baby, tell me how you hate me
