Sample lyrics of “Beg For You” by Charli XCX and Rina Sawayama

Charli XCX has definitely dropped a few bops over the years, and on Friday, January 28, the English singer did it again. Her latest single “Beg for You”, featuring Rina Sawayama, hits all the marks you’d want in a catchy pop single, including some great meme energy. Yes, the lyrics to Charli XCX and Rina Sawayama’s “Beg for You” sample a 2018 Twitter meme.

The singer’s new song was released ahead of her fifth studio album, CRASH, which will be released on March 18. The disc will be Charli XCX’s final album on Atlantic Records. What gets people talking is the song’s soaring chorus, which samples the 2006 song “Cry for You” by Swedish singer Petra Marklund, whose stage name was September at the time. If the name means nothing to you, you may remember the well-known refrain“You’ll never see me again/So who’s gonna cry for you?”

Likewise, when Charli XCX sings the chorus of “Beg for You,” it’s impossible to miss the inspiration for September’s iconic track. The hook is a slightly modified version of the “Cry for You” chorus, but with a new meaning: “Oh, won’t you leave me like this/Won’t you wait another hour or two?/You know I need you to stay / Don’t make me beg for you ’cause I’ll beg for you.

Although “Cry for You” was released in 2006, it had a major resurgence in late 2018 when Twitter users started using the famous lyrics “You’ll never see me again” to refer to everyday life experiences. like lose a sock while doing laundry Where lose your nintendo ds stylus. the viral attention turned the song into a huge meme, so of course Charli and Sawayama’s vision is going to look very familiar to you.
