“It is all about reclaiming your own inner self power,” Ell explained of the track ahead of her performance.
The powerful track finds a confident Ell singing about an ex who she knows wants her back as he now knows he should’ve never left.
“If I were you, I’d miss my kiss, I’d miss me keeping you up all night, If I were you, I know that losing me, would make me lose my mind, You ain’t gonna find nobody like me, I’m the best you ever had and I’m always gonna be, So if I were you, if I were you, I’d want me back too,” Ell sings.
“Want Me Back” was co-written by Ell alongside Kane Brown, Matt McGinn and Lindsay Rimes.
“I feel like I have been the most vulnerable I’ve ever been as a songwriter,” she told PEOPLE of the album.
“This record is more about heartbreak in general because when you go through a breakup, it causes you to look back on all the past relationships and notice patterns,” she adds. “It’s been more of an inner look of like, okay, Lindsay, what are you doing time and time again? And what is good? What is bad? How do you show up right? How do you not show up right?”
Ell’s new album, Heart Theory, dropped on Aug. 21 and explores the seven stage of grief including shock, denial, anger, bargaining, depression, testing and acceptance. The album is out now and you can pick it up, HERE.
