Inspired by Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’, the skyscraper ballad delivers Todrick’s most spine-tingling and emotional vocal performance yet, over stadium-sized rock drums and duelling electric guitars. Co-written by Todrick with producer Jeeve (who has worked with Giorgio Moroder and Nicole Scherzinger), ‘Breath’ is about an undying love in a toxic relationship.
Todrick said: “‘Breath’ is the most transparent and vulnerable I have ever been as a songwriter. Sometimes ‘the one that got away’ is someone who didn’t always bring out the best in you but also made you love like you didn’t know you could. That’s what this song is about. This is my favourite song I have ever written and sang, inspired by my favourite R&B ballads of the 80s.”
