Diaz and Musgraves’s flawlessly blended harmonies add intense emotion to the track’s cuttingly honest chorus.

Every time I try to walk away I stay
You knew I would I know loving you
It don’t do me good
Every time I wake up crying
I’m denying what I should I know
Loving you, it don’t do me good

“I wanted this song to feel like calling your friend,” Diaz shared in a statement. “That moment of needing to commiserate and to have that person say ‘yeah, I’ve been there’ and share that experience with you.” 

“This song is about that person that we keep coming back to,” she added. “No matter how many times they let us down. It’s about waking up every day and making the choice to love a person unconditionally while it’s simultaneously getting harder and harder to ignore that nothing is getting better in the relationship. It’s stubborn, it’s defiant, it’s hopeful, and it’s aggressively optimistic. It’s about being a bit of a masochist and being so in love with the hard work of loving a person that you don’t know how to walk away from them.”

“Don’t Do Me No Good” is the second pre-release single from Diaz’s upcoming album Weird Faith. Set for release on February 9 via ANTI-, the project serves as the follow-up to her acclaimed 2021 record History of a Feeling.
