Speaking with music journalist, Joey Alan, the singer who recently released his sophomore album explained the idea behind the song.
“I threw it away. It was a fling, it was not a relationship. ‘Jealous’ is not a love song. A lot of songs I wrote were not loved songs. People just ‘ahhh, this song is beautiful, love song.’ ‘Jealous’ is not a love song. It’s not a love story. It was a fling. It was just sex.
