Donwill, one third of critically acclaimed Tanya Morgan, is proud to release the latest single off his upcoming album, Don Cusack in High Fidelity. "Love Junkie" maintains the album's theme of love and loss with the soulful vocal styling of Peter Hadar, a verse by Harlem NY's own, Harlems Cash, and production by Aeon. "Aeon sent me the beat and I reached out to Harlems Cash because I had been playing his mixtape pretty heavy," says Donwill. "I pulled Peter Hadar in on the hook because I just enjoy working with him in general. I tend to usually only collaborate with people that I know because its usually easier to work that way for me." With animated synthesizer lines and well placed distortion, the upbeat track and its club feel are the foundation of the song's story - while a rebound girl may be fun for the night, she cannot replace a long-time love. When asked where the inspiration for the song came from Donwill responds, "This song is inspired by one night stands and the way that you use them to feel loved temporarily. Its not always just about sex sometimes, it's about just wanting a connection to a person even if its temporary."
After heartbreak with his girlfriend, Donwill goes out for a much needed night on the town, rapping, "If love is a drug, than I need a new prescription". While embracing his newfound freedom, the emcee is fighting an inner battle about the benefits of a fling versus a relationship. Donwill lightheartedly portrays this with lines like, "A well done fling is a beautiful thing," and "A girl this bad shouldn't be in my bed tonight." When Laura calls frantically about her dad passing, the story takes a turn as Donwill realizes the importance of love over physical satisfaction and rescues her.
