KEY Hate that | A Frustrated Heartbreak Song
I hate that I hate that you’re happy without me~ That’s how the chorus of KEY Hate that in this song directly delivers the message. It is an RnB song with a sentimental guitar melody and sophisticated rhythm. The monologue-style lyrics express honestly about the hope that the other person will not forget about him after a breakup
From the lyrics, it is clear that the song radiates a frustrated feeling of unfairness when a couple break up but one person looks happier without the other. Key showed his ability to express such feelings through his soft voice, making it complete with the great acting in his music video.
