“My Bad” by Khalid
“My Bad” is the title of a 2019 song by American R&B singer Khalid. The lyrics of “My Bad” primarily center on communication issues between the narrator (Khalid) and his significant other.
But who exactly is responsible for the communication problems in the relationship? Is the communication breakdown coming from Khalid or is it coming from his lover? Or is it from both of them? The listeners are not really made to know exactly whose fault it is. However, at some sections of the lyrics, Khalid renders an apology to his woman for the role he played in the communication breakdown.
What is the meaning of the phrase “my bad”?
It is an informal phrase that a person uses to accept blame and responsibility for making a mistake or doing something wrong. This phrase is more commonly used in the United States more than anywhere else in the world.
So in all, when Khalid says the above-mentioned phrase to his significant other, he is basically telling her that he accepts that the ongoing communication-based problems in their relationship are his fault. And although not directly stated, it is so obvious Khalid wants things to work out fine between himself and her.
