Multi-platinum singer, songwriter & producer blackbear has returned with a brand-new single “u love u” featuring singer/songwriter/dancer Tate McRae. The infectious pop ballad features blackbear’s signature blend of honest lyrics and edgy pop production, with a topline vocal performance from fellow hitmaker Tate McRae. 

The single is accompanied by an aptly aesthetic visual, directed by Boni Mata, starring both artists.

u love u’ is a super honest song about the struggles of being in a relationship with a selfish person. I’m really excited to be a part of blackbear’s record and help bring his vision to life.

Tate McRae

u love u is the first single off of my EP misery lake. It’s an EP about isolation and feeling alone I made at the very end of quarantine before I got vaccinated. u love u is the perfect blend of nostalgic synths and new school drums that paints a picture of what it’s like to be in a relationship with a person who loves themselves so much that you feel alone. The opening line, ‘it’s been over for a year or so, I should have left a couple tears ago,’ sets it right up for what is ultimately an anthem for breaking up & to invest more time in yourself. Tate McRae then adds so much depth sonically to this song, it is truly a great way to start off the misery lake era of blackbear.
