Film clip references Lovato’s 2018 drug overdose and G-Eazy’s former assault allegations
G-Eazy and Demi Lovato have teamed up for a new collaborative single, raw and aptly titled ‘Breakdown’.
The track sees both stars facing their demons, with G-Eazy rapping about the pressure and scrutiny that comes from being in the limelight.
It was accompanied by an accompanying music video directed by G-Eazy’s frequent collaborator, Daniel CZ. In it, the rapper and Lovato have faced various media headlines over the years, including Lovato’s 2018 drug overdose and G-Eazy’s arrest and assault charges in the same year. Check it out below.
“I have big plans, but none of them feel like me,” Lovato shared at the time of the song’s release on social media, citing the song’s lyrics.
“Thank you @G_Eazy for sharing this song with me.”
This comes just days after G-Eazy was arrested and charged with allegedly punching two men outside a hotel in New York. The assault allegations mentioned in the song date back to 2018, when he punched a security guard outside a club in Stockholm. He was also charged with drug possession.
Earlier this month, the rapper announced that the long-awaited follow-up to his 2014 album “This Things Happen” would arrive in late September. Titled ‘This Things Happen To’, it will feature ‘Breakdown’ and another new cut, ‘The Announcement’.
Elsewhere, a teaser trailer for Lovato’s upcoming series ‘Unidentified with Demi Lovato’ was aired recently, in which she describes herself as a “UFO experiencer”.
The four-part show will debut on streaming platform Peacock on September 30.
