John Alone teases his full-length project with intoxicating new single 'bad guy'

"The funnest, most toxic song I've ever made and I love it very much..."

Following the release of his wavy R&B single ‘party in da endz’ last month, John Alone marks his return with the brand new single ‘bad guy’ ahead of his upcoming full-length project ‘No One Is Coming To Save You’. 

The track splices sultry R&B hooks with John’s dynamic rap verses, appearing brazen and flippant towards relationships despite masking the protagonists true emotions and feelings of heartbreak.

Speaking about his latest offering, John reveals: “People kinda laugh when I play [‘bad guy’] to them but it’s really not a funny song at all, even though it sounds like one. ‘bad guy’ is the funnest, most toxic song I’ve ever made and I love it very much for that reason. It’s exactly what happens when you get high at 2am and shout into your microphone.

“The entire song is a stream of consciousness deluge. It’s written from the perspective of someone fresh from a break up who wants to have no-strings-attached sex with everyone in the world in order to avoid dealing with the things he’s really sad about. I don’t think sex should be as transactional as it feels like it’s become. That’s my one ‘deep thought’ of the day, I don’t know anything about anything”.

After dropping ‘PACKSONME’ and ‘Omolola(Anita)’ earlier in the year, John is picking up the pace yet again as his anticipated new project edges closer.
