Lily Rose – Villain

Before her chart success, she found popularity on TikTok. Two clips of her song "Villain" accumulated more than 4 million views and 2,000 shares on TikTok in less than a week.

Co-written with Kyle Clark and Mackenzie Carpenter, the song is about being labeled the "bad guy" at the end of a relationship. At the time they penned "Villain," Lilly Rose was just a year out of a breakup. It's a theme they found common ground on — though all three writers are in healthy relationships now, they easily recalled the sting of former flames turned sour.
