On the passionate finisher to her debut album Villains, “Villains Pt. 2” sees Emma Blackery understanding she can’t categorise people, her problems are hers and hers alone, and reflecting upon her past with regret.
Co-written with Peter Hutchings, the song was released under its parent album on August 31, 2018.
Emma Blackery teased the song via Instagram a day before it’s release saying:
"i deliberately didn’t show much of villains pt. 2 in videos. this is the most honest, personal song i’ve ever written. i still don’t want to try to explain it. you’ll understand when you hear it on friday."The song serves as the second part to the album’s first track “Villains Pt. 1.”
Part 2 separates itself as Blackery reflects upon the situation she experienced (mostly incorporating themes of fame and fake friends), and rather than blaming other people, realises her problems are her own. She blames her own self-sabotage for her problems.
On the back of the vinyl album artwork the track list has little messages explaining what each song is directed towards. This song is: ‘For The Worst Of Them All.’ (This is likely Emma referring to herself).
- Emma stated in a tweet that the ending to Villains Pt. 2 was all recorded in one take, and she kept it because she liked it so much.
- She stated in the same tweet that "[she] also got one word wrong because, you know, [she] was preoccupied doing that ... Also, I couldn’t speak properly for the next week after recording it."
