It’s no secret that one of the defining records of the incoming autumn season belongs to beabadoobee. The Philippines-born, London-raised singer-songwriter is fast approaching a billion streams for her growing catalog, and previous LP singles like “Sorry” and “Care” are helping shape October 16’s Fake It Flowers album into a dedicated destination listen.

This week Bea Kristi is back with another track off the LP, titled “Worth It.” And it’s described as a confessional track about letting go of mistakes in past relationships.

“[It’s] simply about teenage infidelity,” says beabadoobee, “and the mistakes one can make when they’re tempted to do things. It’s a bit of a confession song but also an understanding that it’s a part of life.”
