“You called my friends, you called my Dad. You begged for help to win me back. And they would never say it to your face, but no, they never liked you anyway. You missed my birthday and my shows. You made me feel so damn alone, and somehow now you got so much to say. Don’t got time to listen anyway. You called up my phone 50 times from that party. 3 am, you thought I’d be there in a heartbeat. It’s your life but you might wanna put down the Bacardi. Mean this sincerely dude, ‘Are you okay?’” – lyrics

‘r u ok’ tells a heartfelt tale about a young woman who once shared a challenging relationship with a guy who was afraid of love. Apparently, they are not together because he needed space to think things over. But now, he doesn’t like the fact that she has moved on successfully and is doing pretty well for herself, emotionally. Therefore, he loses his mind wondering how can she sleep peacefully at night while his heart is burning up in flames.

‘r u ok’ contains a relationship-based narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful harmonies. Also, the likable tune possesses moody instrumentation flavored with an emotional pop aroma. Furthermore, “r u ok” was co-written with Bryan Fryzel (Blackbear, Machine Gun Kelly) and Elizabeth Lowell Boland (Hailee Steinfield, Madison Beer).

“‘r u ok’ is a song that I never thought I’d write. It has a very sassy and feisty tone, which made it a challenge to dive into that perspective – as I think I’m quite the opposite. I love that in this song there is a lot of emotional meaning behind the lyrics, with very trappy, bright and contrasting production at the same time.” – Tate McRae stated
