Steve Lacy's Bad Habit is a viral hit song that premiered in mid-2022 and quickly gained mainstream radio success as well as a wide amount of usage on TikTok in the form of audio sampling. The general vibe of the song has led to a resurgence in sadge posting, as well as the general sadboyhours like similar-themed songs "Lucid Dreams" and "Glimpse of Us".


On June 29th, 2022, Steve Lacy posted the song on his official YouTube[1] channel, premiering ahead of the full album drop later in July. The song was an instant success with a lot of radio play and online spread, with the original upload receiving over 63 million views in eight months (shown below), and lyric videos of it getting over 7 million views in the same timeframe.


A snippet of the song was posted to TikTok in a now-deleted video prior to the song's full release, with one of the first TikToks to use the audio being posted on June 25th, 2022, a full five days before the song's YouTube premiere, by the TikToker @Brooklynhislop[2], who used it as the background to her attempt at a Squishmallow human claw machine at Vidcon, earning over 576,000 likes in eight months (shown below).
