Love Me Wrong is the first duet by artists Allie X and Troye Sivan – although the two have a long history of collaboration and friendship. It was released on December 6, 2019. This is a promotional single from Allie X's second studio album "Cape God".
"Troye had tweeted about [my 2015 single] ‘Bitch’ before he even became a musician, and was just known as a YouTuber. I DMed him, and he had been working on music, so I was like, ‘We should try writing together.’ And then Leland—aka Brett McLaughlin, a very successful writer now—was the one who put us all in a room together, and the rest is history. I’ve written for Troye for years now—I wrote half the songs on Blue Neighbourhood and Bloom. With him, there’s never any pressure to sound like what’s on the radio, which is usually how it is when you’re writing for another artist in LA. ‘Love Me Wrong’ was actually originally written for a film that Troye was in and it didn’t make the cut, but I was so in love with it from the day that we wrote it in 2017. At that time, it was so different from the record that I was working on, Super Sunset. But then when Cape God started coming together, I was like, ‘Oh, this has to be on it.’ I knew that really early on—thematically, it totally fits in. When we wrote it, I was really tapping into those same feelings, even though I didn’t know I was about to make a record about them.” - Allie X said about the song
