Since 2020, the singer has found himself featured on collabs with groups such as All Time Low and Machine Gun Kelly. It’s blackbear’s versatility and ability to create chart-topping tracks—regardless of the genre—that catapulted him into two award nominations in early 2021.

The new song is the latest to come from the artist’s forthcoming EP, misery lake, due Aug. 13. Released via Alamo/Columbia Records, the EP also features his previously released single “u love u” (feat. Tate McRae).

In addition to his new EP, blackbear is also scheduled to go on a U.S. tour starting fall 2021, where he will support Maroon 5. The collaboration between the two is a long time coming. blackbear guested on Maroon 5’s album Jordi, where he featured on “Echo” and co-wrote and co-produced “Beautiful Mistakes.”

blackbear “@ my worst” lyrics:

This is the end, this is the end, this is the end of me playin pretend that I’m available emotionally
I’m off a Benz, goin around bends
Could be the death of me
I’m not ready, I’m not ready
Maybe I’m the best mistake you ever made
It sounds so fucking beautiful when you say my name I’m praying to a god, a god I don’t believe
The more I hide my scars, the easier I bleed
But maybe I’m the worst, the worst you ever had

Tell you, you’re beautiful, then stab you in the back you’re praying I’m the one, but maybe I’m a curse
The more you try to fix me, the more you make it worse could you love me at my worst?
Could you love me even though, that it hurts?
Could you love me?
Could you love me at my worst?
Yeah, don’t try to call, do not disturb
I do not want to speak

This is the end
Demons are friends, angels are enemies
I’m just a fool, stuck in the past, your worst memories
I’m not ready, for you to forget me
maybe I’m the best mistake you ever made
It sounds so fucking beautiful when you say my name I’m praying to a god, a god I don’t believe
I showed you all my scars that I let nobody see
But maybe I’m the worst, the worst you ever had

Tell you, you’re beautiful, then stab you in the back you’re prayin I the one, but maybe I’m a curse
The more you try to fix me, the more you make it worse could you love me at my worst, could you love me even though, that it hurts?
Could you love?
Could you love me at my worst?
This is the end, this is the end, this is the end of me
