On “SAD!” like many of his songs, XXXTentacion revolves around the struggle of letting go of a loved one and the feeling of depression that follows it. After X was murdered on June 18, 2018, "SAD!" peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
X details emotions of uncertainty surrounding a specific relationship. He is insecure and heartbroken due to the fact that his girlfriend left him, bringing about the overall depressed vibe.
He also brings up suicide, which is a subject X often discusses in his songs. For example, his song “Jocelyn Flores,” off of his 2017 album, 17, where he rapped about a friend of his who suffered from depression and committed suicide.
This song was frequently teased as an intro of X’s gaming videos on his YouTube channel prior to its release.
