Sabrina Carpenter Brings Us Her New Single – ‘Skinny Dipping’

Sabrina Carpenter has undoubtedly made her mark on the world since her Disney Channel days.


She’s proven her excellence in singing, songwriting, touring, and has since taken on more challenging and mature acting roles. It wasn’t too long ago that Sabrina’s name was in the mix as one part of a love triangle that included the beloved young artist, Olivia Rodrigo, and the ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’ star, Joshua Bassett.


Carpenter has released her single ‘Skin,’ which fans quickly deemed a “response track” to Rodrigo’s breakout song ‘Driver’s License,’ where listeners believed Rodrigo was singing about Carpenter’s and Bassett’s budding relationship.


‘Skinny Dipping’ is the first single Carpenter has released since ‘Skin.’ Her effortlessly melodic voice perfectly melds with the lyrics she wrote alongside Julia Michaels and JP Saxe. The song has pacing as a punchy-slam poetry reading and speaks of seeking closure from a past relationship. Keen listeners might have noticed that some of the lyrics within this single are callbacks to previous songs of Carpenter’s.


In the first verse, she sings:


After a minute of nonsensical chatter, you’ll say / “Well, this was really nice, maybe we should do this on purpose sometime.


This line references the lead single from her 2016 album, EVOLution, ‘On Purpose.’ Then again, during the chorus, the artist sings:


We’ve been swimming on the edge of a cliff / I’m resistant, but goin’ down with the ship /It’d bе so nice, right? Right? / If we could take it all off and just еxist.


This lyric references the fifth track on Carpenter’s last album, Singular: Act II, titled ‘Take Off All Your Cool.’


Accompanying the single, the singer also released a whimsical music video directed by Amber Park. The final seconds of the video tease what fans hope to be more upcoming new tunes from the artist. The dainty ethereal version of Sabrina lies on the concrete amongst a sea of handwritten letters in the video.

With this, a dauntless version of her dressed in all red pulls alongside her in a motorcycle; there, she lets down her hair from her helmet. She hints at a new beginning and a new era of music.


Only time will tell as listeners eagerly wait to see what Sabrina Carpenter will drop next. You can watch the full video here:
