"Ugly Heart" is a guitar-driven pop song that also uses a ukulele to give it a country vibe."Ugly Heart" was the last single to be released by the group before band member Simone Battle's death on September 5, 2014.
It depicts the girls being arrested by the police, after they tattoo the word "ugly" on a man's face.
It was watched 2.5 million times in less than a week following its release.
The song features songwriting credits from Ryan Baharloo, Ester Dean, Lukasz Gottwald, John Charles Monds and Henry Walter, with production credits from Gottwald and Walter under their production monikers, Dr. The song was released on June 3, 2014 as the lead single from the EP.
The group thought a lot of women would be able to relate to the song and hoped it would inspire them to find someone who would treat them well.
Mike Wass from Idolator thought the track was an "irresistible anthem" that left him "hooked" after one listen.
