The Band Perry’s ‘The Good Life’: Listen

Kimberly Perry of the Band Perry is releasing some pent-up anger in the group’s latest tune, “The Good Life,” which dropped on Friday (July 12).

“I’m not gonna be a joke/I know about your side piece bro/I’m not gonna fight anymore/Glad I never had your baby/This’ll be a cleaner cut/You can keep the Labradors,” Perry softly sings over an ominous beat, before diving into a high-energy chorus.

In an Instagram post, the songstress revealed the song “is a story about the infidelity I experienced. I want you to know that this song was written during a toxic and incredibly difficult time in my life, but I’m singing it to you now with the voice of a woman who has completely regained a strong sense of self, rebuilt her womanhood, and is grateful to have learned so much.” 

“The lyrics in this song are visceral and strong, just as the feelings have been,” she continued. “I feel empowered by them. I hope they empower you to know your value, and if you find yourself in an environment where someone makes you feel disrespected and degraded, I want you to know that you deserve so much more. It’s ok that things don’t go as planned and it’s also ok to not have a new plan yet. 

She never mentions her ex-husband, J.P. Arencibia, by name, but the MLB player clapped back hard on social media. “It’s sad that at 36 years of age today, a person would try to revive a dying career with click bait,” he wrote in his own post. The two filed for divorce in early 2018. 

“Well, here’s just a little taste of reality to a woman and family that are not in touch with it…swipe left,” he continued, adding a series of text conversations defending his stance.

Tonight on the eve of my birthday and of the release of THE GOOD LIFE I have a few things to say. THE GOOD LIFE is a story about the infidelity I experienced. I want you to know that this song was written during a toxic and incredibly difficult time in my life, but I’m singing it to you now with the voice of a woman who has completely regained a strong sense of self, rebuilt her womanhood, and is grateful to have learned so much. The lyrics in this song are visceral and strong, just as the feelings have been. I feel empowered by them. I hope they empower you to know your value, and if you find yourself in an environment where someone makes you feel disrespected and degraded, I want you to know that you deserve so much more. It’s ok that things don’t go as planned and it’s also ok to not have a new plan yet. And for those who who tell lies, who take advantage of others’ trust and dignity – DO BETTER. I’m so grateful to be here and to blow out candles celebrating another year in my good life. Thank you for caring about my story and for listening. The song coming out tonight is one I needed to make to remind myself that my life is not defined by one ugly situation, my body is not diminished by one uninterested person, and my self worth is not determined by anyone else’s words or behavior. Neither is yours. So many songs coming your way! I love you all. K xx
