Background[]

Released a few hours after the re-ignition of her ongoing feud with songstress Iggy Azalea, Used To Being Alone was released on March 1st, 2016. Used To Being Alone was created over Tony Igy’s ‘'Astronomia’‘, further pushing the beef between Azealia and Iggy to another level.

Azealia confirmed via her business Twitter account @XoCheapy that there will be a new rendition of Used To Being Alone that will be set on her forthcoming album, Business & Pleasure.[1]

Critical reception[]

NME opined:

"Then comes the skittering ‘Can’t Do It Like Me’, a brag track Banks says was originally intended for Rihanna, and a trio of club bangers that remind us Banks can sing as well as rap. As she belts out ‘Used To Being Alone’, a sleek repurposing of Tony Igy’s dance instrumental ‘Astronomia’, she seems to draw from her pre-rap years studying musical theatre at New York’s LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts."[2]

Lyrics[]

[Intro]
How does it feel?
(Stuck in my mind)
How does it feel to..
How does it feel?
(Stuck in my mind)
To treat me the way..
How does it feel
To treat me the way you?
How does it feel
To treat me the way you do?

[Bridge]
Stuck in my mind
Stuck
Stuck in my mind

[Chorus]
Oh, it took so long to get over ya
How do I prepare?
When I swore I'd never see you again?
And now you're here
Looking as surreal as before
(Stuck, stuck in my mind)
Now that I am so used to being alone..
Oh, it took so long to get over ya
How do I prepare?
When I swore I'd never see you again?
And now you're here
Looking as surreal as before
(Stuck, stuck in my mind)
Now that I am so used to being alone...

[Outro]
How does it feel?
How does it feel to...
How does it feel
To treat me the way?
How does it feel
To treat me the way you?
How does it feel
To treat me the way you...
