And unlike “The Big Big Beat,” this one’s got Banks shower off a softer side of herself as she soulfully croons about lost love. “How does it feel?/ How does it feel to/ How does it feel to treat me the way you do?,” she questions over the euphoric, D.R.U.G.S. production. “It took so long to get over you / How do I prepare when I swore I’d never see you again?”
The track seems to double as subtle shade at her nemesis Iggy Azalea, who used the same Tony Igy sample on her 2011 mixtape cut “My World” and earlier this week reignited her long-running feud with Banks in an interview with Elle Canada – saying: “I think the Azealia Banks thing is what really started it all. We don’t like each other on a personal level.” Twitter beef aside, “Used To Be Alone” is actually quite great.
