On “SAD!,” like many of his songs, X revolves around the struggle of letting go of a loved one and the feeling of depression that follows it.
X details emotions of uncertainty surrounding a specific relationship. He is insecure and heartbroken due to the fact that his girlfriend left him, bringing about the overall depressed vibe.
He also brings up suicide, which is a subject X often discusses in his songs. For example, his song “Jocelyn Flores,” off of his 2017 album, 17, where he rapped about a friend of his who suffered from depression and committed suicide.
On March 1st, 2018, X announced that he would be releasing 2 songs at midnight; which ended up being “SAD!” and “changes.”
This song was frequently teased at the beginning of X’s gaming videos on his YouTube channel prior to its release.
