Here’s what Erin had to say:
“‘Practice Girlfriend” is an upbeat pop song that I hope makes other girls feel empowered. The lyrics tell the story of a real life dating experience of mine, and stresses not settling for anyone that does not treat you how you deserve. This boy I was talking to used used to tell me that it was okay that he was seeing someone else at the same time because she was just his “practice girlfriend”. I was telling Nate Flaks and Noah Longworth (who co-wrote and produced the track) about the situation, and this upbeat pop song is what naturally arose; I hope it is able to be a supportive anthem to some.”
