Jeffrey Chan is clapping back at an ex in his song “You Only Want Me When I’m Gone.” 

Through the lyrics, he comes to the realization that he was in a toxic relationship.  He knows that he should have been treated better.  Chan discussed the song in an Instagram post saying it’s “a breakup song but it’s also about finding your inner strength.”  He also described it as “the perfect song to scream as you drive down the highway with your windows down.”

Chan’s deep vocals bring power and depth to the lyrics and music.  He is inspired by EDM, dance, and 80’s pop music and it shows on this track.  Even the video for the song gives off an 80’s vibe.  The Australian singer-songwriter directed and edited the music video and shares co-producing credit with Rebbel.
