Make BANKS’ ‘Drowning’ The Soundtrack To Your Next Breakup

Dump that toxic beau.

BANKS knows what’s up. Her new single, “Drowning,” darkly captures what a toxic relationship can do to a person — read: leave your heart cold and gasping for air.

“Take it from the girl you claim to love/ You’re gonna get some bad karma,” BANKS croons over a shuttering, dramatic beat, opining,
“From the girl who made you soup and tied your shoes when you were hurting/ You were not deserving, you were not deserving.”

Make this the anthem for the impending anti-cuffing season.

BANKS’ debut album GODDESS is September 9.
