Beginning with a soft melody, an infectious beat follows shortly after and carries through the track. Pouring out emotions from a recent heartbreak, Elijah explains his feelings in his lyricism, “If I said I love you, I still love you cause I’m real like that.” When describing the songwriting process for “Over You,” Elijah said, “I had recently got out of a relationship and found out the girl I was with cheated on me. I was in the club one night drinking and feeling dark, and it dawned on me. If I’m going to speak about everything, it has to be a song that’s undeniable, and that will get played everywhere. Clubs, cars, traveling, in the gyms, literally everywhere. I ended up hitting up my producer and telling him I wanted a Jersey club song with a sad sample. We made the beat and wrote the song on the same day.” Known for using his music and songwriting as a form of expression and escape, “Over You” is another example of how this proves true.
