Kimberly Perry of the Band Perry is releasing anger in the group’s latest tune, “The Good Life,” which dropped on Friday.
“I’m not gonna be a joke/I know about your side piece bro/I’m not gonna fight anymore/Glad I never had your baby/This’ll be a cleaner cut/You can keep the Labradors,”Perry softly sings over an ominous beat.
“it’s a story about the infidelity I experienced. I want you to know that this song was written during a toxic and incredibly difficult time in my life, but I’m singing it to you now with the voice of a woman who has completely regained a strong sense of self, rebuilt her womanhood, and is grateful to have learned so much. The lyrics in this song are visceral and strong, just as the feelings have been,”

“I feel empowered by them. I hope they empower you to know your value, and if you find yourself in an environment where someone makes you feel disrespected and degraded, I want you to know that you deserve so much more. It’s ok that things don’t go as planned and it’s also ok to not have a new plan yet.”
