Allie X - Girl of the Year

[Verse 1]
I've got ambition, I did the rounds
You got invested now you're taking me out
I'm nothing to you, that's what you like
I'm just a battery to keep you energized

But if you see me coming
Pretend that I'm the only one
I like your lies
If you see me coming
You better show me you're in love
I like your lies

There's a hollow inside you
And it won't disappear
Oh no, baby the way we work we've got about a year
There's a hollow inside you
But don't worry I'm here (I'm here)
I don't care that you're looking for the next girl of the year
Girl of the year

[Verse 2]
Somebody younger, with longer hair
When you want someone, clap your hands and she's there
No expectations and no regrets
I knew what I was in for soon as we met

“Girl of the Year” was the fifth single released from Allie X’s sophomore EP, Super Sunset. The track was first debuted at the Rough Trade NYC Bar on July 29th, 2018 and an excerpt of the instrumental was first used in the Super Sunset teaser on Allie’s YouTube channel. Allie revealed on an Instagram Live that originally the track was much slower, somewhere around 70 BPM, but it was sped up to where the track is now, causing the key and pitch of the vocals to change drastically. "My manager told me: 'don’t keep the pitched vocals, it’s too weird!' and so I had to record them again, but it was too high so I was literally just screaming the lyrics, even live I had to take it down a semitone." Some of said pitched vocals can still be heard on the bridge of the song.
