Cari Elise Fletcher, better known as FLETCHER, is a queer pop singer-songwriter. She first gained attention in 2016 with her breakout hit “Wasted Youth” and has been steadily releasing new music ever since.
In anticipation of her debut album’s release later this month, FLETCHER has shared a new song, “Becky’s So Hot,” after the release of “Her Body Is Bible” earlier this year.
With her unique blend of catchy pop hooks and personal lyrics, FLETCHER is quickly cementing herself as one of the most promising new artists in the music industry today.
Jealousy And Desire
We’ve all been there before. You see your ex out with someone new, and you can’t help but feel a little jealous. “Becky’s So Hot” is a pop anthem that perfectly captures those complicated feelings of jealousy and desire.
“Are you in love like we were? / If I were you, I’d probably keep her / Makes me wanna hit her when I see her,” FLETCHER sings in the chorus. “Cause Becky’s so hot in your vintage t-shirt / Ooh, she the one I should hate / But I wanna know how she tastes.”
A True Story Behind The Song Lyrics
Instagram: FINDINGXFLETCHER, BECKYMISSAL
The song “Becky’s So Hot” was inspired by a real person and a real situation.
“I was in the studio, stalking my ex-girlfriend’s new girlfriend on Instagram, and I saw a picture of her wearing an old vintage t-shirt of my ex’s,” FLETCHER told Zane Lowe on Apple Music. “And it’s one I’ve worn before as well. And I’m looking at the photo, and I’m like, ‘Damn it, she’s so hot.’ And I accidentally liked the picture.”
Fans quickly speculated that the song was about Becky Missal, the current girlfriend of FLETCHER’s ex-girlfriend, YouTuber Shannon Beveridge.
What was their reaction to the song? Well, Beveridge reacted on Twitter by simply saying “an empath would never,” while Missal answered “no” when someone asked her on Instagram if she was giving a “thumbs up” to the song. Ouch....
But, even though the song is based on a true story, FLETCHER added additional details and complexities to make the song more accessible and interesting. Fletcher didn’t want it to be solely about feeling jealous of another woman.
“It felt more interesting to me to write something from the perspective of being in awe of [Becky],” she said. “Sort of like ‘damn… it kinda stings that she’s so hot, but I can’t even be mad about it because I get it… she’s hot.’”
