Giveon has just dropped his new track, Scarred, and it already has fans in tears as the star sings about heartbreak.
Give Or Take, the debut album by the 27-year-old singer (real name Giveon Dezmann Evans), is finally here and the song Scarred is hitting fans in all the feels.
Giveon’s Give Or Take heartbreak
In an interview Giveon gave to Rated RnB, he revealed the 15-track project is all about “love and the loss” he’s gone through in the past year.
He said: “My debut album Give Or Take is a collection of reminiscences over the last few years of my life. Suddenly having to adapt to a world in which there are so many eyes watching and experiencing a wide spectrum of emotions at once naturally brought these songs to the surface.
“All in all, Give Or Take reflects the love and the loss I’ve had to face as well as the growth and the healing I’ve come to accept.”
Giveon also told Apple Music the album is incredibly “personal”, which is why the only voices to feature on it are his – and his mom’s of course.
“This story is so personal there can’t be another voice besides me and my mom because that’s the conversation that was had,” he explained.
His song Scarred, which was produced by Boi-1da, has him singing to a person who’s interested in him romantically, but he can’t give his heart because it’s “broken”.
He sings: “I just don’t want you (the) same way you want me / Don’t want you the same way / I can’t give you my heart ’cause it’s broken / But still come home with me.”
Fans in tears over Giveon track Scarred
Now fans are absolutely losing it over the lyrics saying it has them in tears. One said: “Giveon don’t never miss with the heartbreaking songs.” Another said the song “hits close to home”.
However, one person did call out the song as “toxic” for its lyrics:
Giveon dropped the album ahead of his Give Or Take Tour, which kicks off on August 16 at The Metropolitan Opera House in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Fana Hues, Saleka, Jenevieve and Rimon are set to join the star as support acts.
