The live performance of “Breakdown” replicated the song’s official music video, positioning the duo on opposite sides of the stage, with G-Eazy cast in darkness and Lovato under bright golden lights. As Lovato sings, media headlines written about her 2018 heroin overdose flashed on the screen behind her.
Eazy rapped about “fighting his demons,” making reference to his own struggles with drug abuse. “Truthfully I’ve been breaking down, just finally letting on,” he continued.
These Things Happen Too was released on September 14. In addition to Lovato, the 19-track album packs in features on the majority of its songs, including guest appearances from Lil Wayne, YG, Ty Dolla $ign, E-40, Anthony Hamilton, DaBoii, Marc E. Bassy and more.
Eazy shared his admiration for Lovato while discussing their collaboration with Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe, applauding her courage to speak out and describing the singer as “a very powerful force of bravery, of talent, of ability.”
