“Miss You” is the remix of the 2020 track “Jerk” from American singer Oliver Tree. It was released on the 5th August 2022 through Atlantic Records.
The song was originally remixed by German DJ Southstar, which caused controversy after the release of Schulz’s remix, as Southstar claimed that the remixes were identical. Southstar took to Instagram to comment on the situation:
“I reworked “Jerk“ by Oliver Tree out of pure admiration for his track and vocals. We cleared the publishing rights with the three authors of “Jerk”, including Oliver Tree, allowing me to release my reworked version of ‘Jerk’ called ‘Miss You’. And contrary to some rumors circulating online, I never sold this rework or my production.”
After this statement and backlash from fans and artists about the track’s similarities, Schulz manager Stefan Dabruck released a statement revealing that the confusion around the song was “intentional” and that Schulz had originally hoped to create a remix with Southstar prior to his release.
Lyrically, the song is about knowing your worth after leaving a relationship where there was toxicity, and not being treated correctly, as well as your other half not knowing your worth. A sped up version of the track went viral on TikTok.
The official audio video for the song premiered on Oliver Tree’s official YouTube channel on the 5th August 2022. As of the 18th January 2023, the video had a total of 9.9 million views.
