Sabrina Carpenter's new single "Smoke and Fire" is unlike anything she has ever created. You can hear how the starlet is headed in a whole new direction musically, and she's ready to take on this new era on in a bold way. In a new interview though when she was asked to describe "Smoke and Fire," she didn't speak about it in way you would expect, since the tune was inspired by the end of her relationship with Bradley Steven Perry.
"I don't describe it first as a breakup song, although anyone who has ears will," Sabrina said. "[It] describes how it feels when a relationship comes to an end — and the very first part afterward — and dealing with that on your own. You don't have that person there to talk to 24/7 anymore. The song came from a place where I was fresh out of the oven, maybe not in the best place, but it really makes me feel empowered when I sing it. It always feels good to put something you're proud of out in the world. This song has been my little secret for quite some time. Now it's the world's little secret."
The Girl Meets World* actress doesn't think of it as a breakup, power anthem but just about how she was feeling right after her relationship all fell apart. It's a retelling of exactly what she went through, and it's something tons of people can relate to. Even though she said people might tend to focus on what's going on in her personal life, she just uses that extra attention as a way of fueling her song-writing process.
"It truly felt like the song wrote itself since I was just telling a story," she added. "People talk regardless, which is a big part of the song. I handle the pressure by making more music to take their mind off of the latest thing."
And this is why Sabrina is the best!
