Love Ghost and Cinnamon Babe unleash a blistering alt-metal anthem that throws a punch to the haters trying to tear them down. The track, produced by the acclaimed MIKE SUMMERS (known for his work with Tech N9ne, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne), is the latest in a string of critically acclaimed singles from Love Ghost, having garnered praise from Rolling Stone, Clash, American Songwriter, FLAUNT, Alternative Press, Lyrical Lemonade, Earmilk, Playboy, Grita Fuerte, and more.

“DO YOU LIKE ME NOW?” is accompanied by a visually striking music video featuring Love Ghost grappling with the concept of self-control within a video game aesthetic.

For the whole span of 3 minutes 27 seconds you’ll forget sugary lyrics and swooning melodies. The song comes out as an eruption of raw emotion that explodes from the speakers with the fury of a loud Molotov cocktail. The song hinges on a central question: “Do you like me now?” This isn’t a plea for affection, but a challenge. The lyrics paint a picture of a protagonist battered by negativity, a “witch hunt” that leaves them “paralyzed.” Yet, there’s a twisted sense of empowerment in this pain. The line “you hate me, but I like that” flips the script, suggesting the protagonist thrives on defying expectations.

The song takes a fascinating turn in the bridge. The protagonist acknowledges the silencing effect of societal expectations: “Shut my mouth, and I’m not myself.” But this is followed by a defiant roar: “I’d love to watch you bleed.” The repetition of “I’m right here” at the end hammers home the point: the protagonist refuses to be ostracized or ignored.

This pairing is nothing short of musical madness. Cinnamon Babe’s raw and aggressive rapping meshes perfectly with Love Ghost’s unique blend of dark, driving rock. Though it’s not a song for the weak of heart, “DO YOU LIKE ME NOW?” is a potent examination of overcoming pessimism and persevering in the face of hardship.

Love Ghost’s “DO YOU LIKE ME NOW?” Lyrics:

Do you like me now?
Do you hate me now?

In a sea of spite, I was half drowned
Paralyzed from the waist down
A witch hunt, a crown of thorns
Chase me down like I’m deformed
And you hate me , but I like that
Love to hurt me, till I bite back
Try to take me, but it won’t last
Because I won’t let it break me

Your blade, it runs through me
Afraid, is something I can’t be
Don’t speak , just walk away
I’m a grenade

Do you like me now?
Let the violence out
Do you hate me now?
Let the silence out
Do you like me, do you like me
Do you like me now

Shut my mouth, and I’m not my self
Stare at my reflection as my face melts
Lost everything plus my mental health
Forgot myself in the web of lies
My mind’s a matrix, the world is fake
But in my truth is the me you hate
I lost some faith in becoming my best
Cause being hated is something I accept

Your blade, it runs through me
Afraid, is something I can’t be
Don’t speak , just walk away
I’m a grenade

Do you like me now?
Let the violence out
Do you hate me now?
Do you hate me? Do you hate me? Do you hate me?
Let the silence out
Do you like me, do you like me
Do you like me now

Do you like me now?
Everybody’s got their eyes fixated on me
Feeling like I’m on display
Like some kind of freak
Come at me
You won’t find, what you thought you’d see
You’ll be damned when I speak
I’d love to watch you bleed

I’m right here
I’m right here… X5
