In “Exes,” McRae reflects on past relationships, acknowledging that despite the breakups, there are still lingering memories. The chorus echoes this sentiment, with McRae singing, “Kisses to my exes who don’t give a sh*t about me. Kisses, kisses to the next ones who think they can live without me.”

The song came together swiftly during the final day of the album-making process. McRae shares, “We wrote ‘Exes’ on the last day of the album-making process. It was kind of like the last hurrah that Ryan Tedder and I wrote in legitimately 30 minutes. It talks about my flaws in a relationship, and some of my self-deprecating and self-sabotaging tendencies.”
Accompanied by a visually captivating video, McRae and a group of dancers explore a run-down rodeo venue, using energetic moves choreographed by Sean Bankhead to dance away the pain.
“Exes” is a glimpse into McRae’s upcoming album, Think Later, scheduled for release on December 8th via RCA.
