Sometimes the best form of self-care is moving on from a toxic relationship. With towering talent behind the mic and behind the boards, Dallas native FXXXXY specializes in glistening jams for late night drives. Welcoming us into his hedonistic, romantic, and textured sonic world, FXXXXY shares “Self Care,” his latest single.
A gorgeous and bittersweet piano ballad, “Self Care” finds FXXXXY dwelling on a failed relationship and the difficulty of moving on, dripping with sarcasm when addressing his ex. A whirlwind of energy draining and conflicting emotions, FXXXXY wrestles with the temptation to get back with a woman he knows was not right for him, before eventually deciding to take time for himself.
Whether he raps or sings, FXXXXY captivates with his raspy vocals and ear for hooks. Signed to Rule #1/Interscope, FXXXXY produces most of his music himself, with a style that ranges from snapping, synth-driven trap to soul-sampling heat. After sharing the critically acclaimed project Flawed Up Shawty in 2017, FXXXXY earned a co-sign from Earl Sweatshirt for his confessional lyricism and biting wit. “Self Care” comes in the wake of “Need U,” an immersive trap ballad with a guest verse from Gunna, which has over 2 million streams on Spotify alone.
