Sorry Not Sorry, in this song sees Bryson Tiller addressing a girl he dated pre-fame. Since blowing up, she wants to rekindle their romance. Bryson isn’t having any of it. This may be same girl he raps about on “Overtime.”
During an interview with Billboard, Tiller revealed this song was given to him by Timbaland and he recorded it in his hotel room:
One was “Sorry Not Sorry” and the other one was “Been That Way” and I recorded both of them in my hotel. I was going to record it at the Hit Factory, but I told Tim I don’t really like recording in big studios, so he bought me a whole bunch of equipment to record in my hotel.
