Gracie Abrams And benny blanco Teach Us How To ‘Unlearn’ Love In New Single

Gracie Abrams and benny blanco on one track?! Who did we get in the good graces of to be blessed with this collaboration!? Seriously, this is a match made in artistic heaven!

Just like they say in the song, “excuse our French, but we’re losing our shit” over this collab. Gracie Abrams’ angelic vocals mixed with benny’s flawless and masterful production are like pasta and cheese, delicious on their own, but combined… It blows your mind! And we haven’t even talked about the lyrics yet!

Oh god, the poetic lyrics! They are just as sad as the music makes them sound. The song is about having to unlearn behavior you became accustomed to in a previous relationship with lyrics like “But every time you turn your phone around I just kind of lose my lose my shit. Thinkin’ it’s another me, hangin’ on the other line” and also “Excuse my mouth but every time you run a little late, hanging with your friends, I freak the fuck out,” it’s very obvious the kind of heartbreak this person has experienced in the past- a heartbreak many of us will relate to. But it’s more than a song about heartbreak. This person is finally in a good relationship, and she’s trying desperately to unlearn all of this behavior so she can love her partner fully and without hesitation, and if they can just be patient with them, it’ll be worth it. You can see this play out in the lyrics of the chorus:

“Cause if I’m gonna learn how to love you
I need to unlearn how to love too
Need to unlearn how to run when it feels right
Oh my God I’m trying

If I’m gonna learn how to choose you
I need to unlearn what I’m used to
Need to unlearn how to run when it feels right
Oh my God I’m trying”

It’s beautifully written and even more beautifully executed through the way Gracie makes you feel the words with her voice and benny’s subtle production tricks to make you feel the sadness through the music. Check out the video below, or you can go stream the song here!

We’re not crying… you are. *sniffles* If you want a double whammy, Gracie and benny just performed this song on The Late Late Show With James Corden, and- you guessed it- it’s just as magical as you would imagine it to be! Check it out below!

Safe to say, we might be in love with this song and have fallen more in love with Gracie and benny. It’s going to be on repeat for the rest of our lives (we’re not even being dramatic, ok?), and we think it’s a worthy contender to be a No.1 hit.
