“At first glance, ‘Hype’ is a self explanatory track about calling someone out on their bullshit, basically saying ‘You’ve got a huge ego and that kind of attitude can be dangerous’. However, on a deeper level, it can be an empowering song for anyone who is torn down/intimidated by people who act like they’re better than you. The idea behind the song was to give people the courage to say, ‘fuck it, I don’t need that kind of negativity in my life. You’re not worth the hype’.” -Chloe Tang
Tang sings about this experience is her R&B / electronic pop track “Hype.” As the moon lights up the back alleys of the city, she and her friends find themselves in trouble, dining-and-dashing at a restaurant and partying with mysterious substances in the middle of the night. She pays homage to her Chinese-American background at a Chinese restaurant feasting on roast pork buns, chow fun, and Tsingtao Chinese beer. After the restless wanderers party all night, Tang wakes up from a hazy, drug-induced frenzy surrounded by her passed out “friends.” Silence fills the room, followed by Tang singing “I’m done with all this” trying to get through the blurred memories of aggressive tension and distressing feelings. Tang didn’t lie when she said she sings from the truth; she wants her music to be relatable, personal, and the escape listeners can turn to during an emotional release.
