Almost every season, we witness at least one dramatic celebrity breakup. But, this season has accompanied great music from artists responding to the drastic breakups they went through in the public eye. And we must say, we love all the gossip revealed in the lyrics; they break our hearts and give us something to relate to. And there’s no better way to get through a breakup than by releasing a hit revenge song addressed to your ex!
While we’re not entirely sure who this song is about, we’re guessing it’s about that particular ex of Sherine’s. It is one of the most catchy songs you’ll listen to, and you’ll even find yourself dancing to its straightforward lyrics.
