Music Crush Monday: Sabrina Carpenter

We’re easing into this week with Sabrina Carpenter’s latest single, “because i liked a boy.”

‘”because i liked a boy,” takes a look at re-imagining time with an ex. Perhaps this is Sabrina Carpenter’s way of clearing up being dragged in a huge love triangle drama that took over the internet in early 2021. This record is off of her fifth studio album which hints at all the troubles Sabrina had been through due to the online craze. If you didn’t know, Sabrina Carpenter surprised her fans with the release of the 13-track album ‘Emails I Can’t Send’ on Friday, July 15, 2022.

The lyrics addresses a romantic relationship that started off “innocently” and that they “bonded over Black Eyed Peas” and “complicated exes”. But soon after their relationship is made public, Sabrina sings that she is called a “homewrecker” due to various assumptions on social media “all because i liked a boy”. The emotional track hints at the infamous love triangle drama between Sabrina, Olivia Rodrigo and Joshua Bassett.

whether you follows along or not, the song is catchy and we can’t help but listen on repeat. Not to mention that the greatest lesson we’re seeing here is it sounds like it’s his problem. All love to those two talented ladies embroiled in this heartbreak.
