Press play. A male vocalist was the first unique modification, and gives a completely new tone to the single. Originally recorded by Gnash ft. Olivia O’Brien, the verses in “I Love You, I Hate You” are changed up by Lil Mike, as he expresses his own story with the smooth, consistent piano behind a rattling beat.
The track is filled with a lot of emotion; it makes you feel as though you’ve been left alone in a dark room with nothing but a lonely, dim-lit lamp and “dark thoughts”. Lil Mike mentions that the original song spoke to him and he “meditated on the record for [quite some time].” He knew exactly who he wanted to collaborate with for this single; Monroe, Louisiana’s own, Britton Satcher (who has credits with Lil Boosie and E-40).
