The song’s lyrics tout the ups and downs of a relationship and find the artists confessing that even though their lovers might annoy them sometimes, they can’t imagine their lives without them.

“I might be better on my own/ I hate you blowing up my phone/ I wish I never met yo’ a**/ Sometimes it be like that/ But I’m not myself the nights you’re gone/ There ain’t no way I’m moving on/ I’m not afraid to need you bad/ Sometimes it be like that,” they sing on the chorus.

“It’s about all the different feelings you can have in a relationship,” Brown told Billboard of the track. “And trying not to overthink it. When it gets tough, you want to be on your own, but then you miss the person a second later. I think it’s something everyone goes through.”

Brown first debuted the song during his headlining Worldwide Beautiful Tour. During the opening night of the North American leg of the tour, Brown told fans “Be Like That” would be his next single sent to pop radio.
