The acoustic guitar provides an interesting contrast as this instrument is rare in tropical house and similar genres.

Down For You is a 'make-up' song about going back to the one you love— whom you broke up with—even though it means going against yourself. In writing these words, the aim was to recreate something that anyone who has had to go back to a love that also brought them pain could relate to. Melodically and lyrically, the choice was made to match the beat’s dynamic nature. This ﬁrst verse serves as an introduction to the issue at hand; following the break-up, you’re having regrets and second-guessing your decision to leave. The third line highlights the duality of your relationship with the person and the power they have over you, seeing they hold both pain and pleasure. The last two lines serve as a refrain, teasing the song’s major point. The ﬁrst line of the pre-chorus piggybacks on the image in the song’s ﬁrst line. The second highlights the seriousness of the conundrum you ﬁnd yourself in. The next two lines show the battle that still rages within. Although your lover brings hell, the refrain (last two lines) hits again, this time, stronger than the ﬁrst. This leads us into the main decision that lays in wait at the chorus. This chorus delivers the song’s main message: you can come back and break me again because I’d rather be with you, and even if I have to ﬁght myself, then I’ll go down for you.
The song is available for purchase on Spotify, iTunes, Google Play and Apple Music.
