“I’m So Happy” by Jeremy Zucker (ft. BENEE)
The full title of this song, as relayed in the chorus, is “I’m so happy you’re not here”. And with that in mind, what this track actually akin to is a breakup anthem. Or as explained by Jeremy Zucker, usually a romance-based song with a theme like “I’m so happy” would center on the vocalist celebrating that special someone in his life and how their presence edifies him. But contrarily in this case, he rather decided to “flip the idea” and rather rejoice in being devoid of the addressee, his ex, as opposed to with her.
And Benee, who only shows up in the second verse, relays a similar narrative. She seems to have realized some time ago that her ex wasn’t the one. But, by the looks of things, she went along with it as the result of a sexual dependency she developed on him. Yet ultimately, what’s being implied is that she came to the conclusion that he was too toxic to continue f*-king with.
And so it is with the thesis sentiment of this piece. The chorus reads like a polite way of dissing one’s ex. The singer is ‘not holding a thing against’ this individual. But he is letting this person know explicitly, even if doing so hurts her feelings, that he’s now enjoying life more with her not around than when they were together. So the implication, even though it’s never stated directly, is that said ex worried the hell out of him in one way or another.
