Jealousy is a common human emotion, and the frustration of teen love and angst goes hand and hand. The song “IFHY” by Tyler, the Creator illustrates the frustration. 

“IFHY” is a melancholy song, but Tyler’s anger and jealousy are present in the lyrics. He likes this girl, but is confused and does not know how to interpret his feelings. Meanwhile, she is seeing someone else. Trying to salvage this relationship, Tyler gets frustrated.
