Grimes appears to make several subtle digs at ex-boyfriend Elon Musk in her new single, “Player of Games.”
Throughout the track, the 33-year-old singer – who split from the SpaceX founder and avid PC gamer in September – sings about being in love with the “greatest gamer.”
“I’m in love with the greatest gamer,” she croons, “but he’ll always love the game more than he loves me.”
According to NDTV.com, Musk was creating video games before he became a millionaire at 27 years old. The Tesla CEO, now 50, tweeted in January that he he still plays Halo, a military science fiction video game.
Speculation that Grimes’ new song could be about Musk becomes even more evident around the 0:36 mark of the lyric video, when she sings, “Sail away to the cold expanse of space, even love couldn’t keep you in your place.”
Musk back in September that his work was a primary reason for his split from Grimes.
“It’s mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas and her work is primarily in LA,” he said at the time.
Grimes and Musk dated for three years and share one child together: son X Æ A-12, aka “Baby X.”
