“Cruel Intentions” almost seamlessly varies between two fundamentally different approaches in describing the end of a relationship. The transitions are almost seamless because the power of Chloe Black’s voice pulls the two approaches together. During one approach, the vocals are somber and reflective, with minimal support. This is the case at the start of the song, “I won’t try to defend all of my crazy; I don’t know if you’d understand.” But the lead vocals in other segments of “Cruel Intentions” are supported by thunderous percussion and driving backing vocals.
