About Better

"Better" is a song recorded by American singer-songwriter Meghan Trainor featuring American rapper Yo Gotti for her second major-label studio album Thank You (2016). Trainor, Mario Mims, Taylor Parks, Travis Sayles, Eric Frederic, Tommy Brown and Steven Franks wrote the song, and the latter three produced it. Initially released as a promotional single, the track was released on August 29, 2016, as the third single from the album. Lyrically, the dancehall, reggae, and pop song is an empowering breakup anthem. It was well received by critics who considered it a different direction for Trainor. "Better" peaked at number 35 on the US Adult Top 40 and at number 27 on the US Mainstream Top 40. Released on September 15, 2016, the music video was directed by Tim Mattia and featured a cameo from Beau Bridges. Critics praised it for telling an important story and being more raw than Trainor's previous releases. Trainor performed the song on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and included it on the setlist for The Untouchable Tour (2016).

Finally blew up in my face
Crash and burnt to pieces
You got what you want from me
I gave you what you needed

I was warned but fooled by charm
And you deserve to be alone

And I deserve better, better than you
I deserve better, better than you
I deserve better (I deserve, I deserve better)
Tell 'em what they already know, I deserve better
(I deserve, I deserve better)
Tell 'em what they already know, I deserve better

I used to cry to all my friends
But they would say, "I told ya"
Finally, I can breathe again
The weight is off my shoulders
I was warned but fooled by charm
And you, you deserve to be alone

And I deserve better, better than you
I deserve better, (I deserve, I deserve) better than you
I deserve better (I deserve, I deserve better)
Tell 'em what they already know, I deserve better
(I deserve, I deserve better)
Tell 'em what they already know, I deserve better

Let's talk about the word deserve
Or talk 'bout the world deserves a queen (You queen)
Let's talk about that four letter word love
I think you deserve a king
I think you deserve the world and everything in it
And I try to go get it to show you I meant it when I
Tell you I'm sorry, tomorrow I promise that I
Try to better, I'll do whatever for mine
And I ain't tryna be your friend's friends
Or your quote unquote fake friend, that's why I hate friends
I'd rather see you laugh to see you cry
I'd rather see you lead and tell a lie
And you ain't gotta say it, you deserve better

I deserve better, better than you
I deserve better, (I deserve, I deserve) better than you
I deserve better (I deserve, I deserve better)
Tell 'em what they already know, I deserve better
(I deserve, I deserve better)
Tell 'em what they already know, I deserve better
