She stated that “It feels to me like one of those songs that comes on at the height of a party where you are a little bit [fucked] up, you maybe want to cry, but you also want to dance. When I was driving through L.A. listening to this beat for the first time, I felt a real sense of euphoria – but also this quite nostalgic thing. Because it’s a garage beat, it reminded me of being at home in the U.K., at a house party with my friends who I’ve known since I was 12 years old.”
“Beg for You” is a song by English singer and songwriter Charli XCX featuring Japanese singer Rina Sawayama. Is the third single from XCX’s fifth studio album, Crash (2022).
