Breaking up is, indeed, hard to do. [artist id="860639"]50 Cent[/artist] touches on the topic of relationships on his next single, “Do You Think About Me,” from the upcoming Before I Self Destruct . 50 spoke to us recently on the set of the video.
“So many people are gonna I.D. with it,” Fif told us about the single, his favorite on the album. “The 55 percent of people that have been married and divorced are gonna identify with it.
“I was writing about the difference of how it felt when it was only about money once it got down to me dealing with the child-support situation,” he continued. “The friendship we had was forgotten. I believe people invest in each other and it’s never even when you’re in a relationship — one person is loving harder than the other. When the expectations aren’t being met, they kinda resent the other party. A lot of times they don’t go from being boyfriend and girlfriend or to getting engaged or being married back to being friends. They kinda gotta part ways from each other because one still has feelings and one is ready to move on.”
The clip for “Do You Think About Me” continues the precedent set by his current video, “Baby By Me,” and will lead into the third single from Self Destruct,“Get It Hot.”
“I had to do ‘Baby By Me’ before I can get to ‘Do You Think About Me’ because the singles tell the story. From ‘Do You Think About Me,’ I’m going to ‘Get it Hot.’ ”
Before I Self Destruct lands in stores November 16.
