Ryan Caraveo answers his detractors with a new song called “Jealousy” (produced by L.E.K.). The message here: work hard and don’t waste your youth dwelling on peripheral opinion, lest you become the person who ends up hating the new version of yourself. Or something.

(And for post-listening exposition: Critics get old, cranky and end up eating their own tails. Discuss.)
