See: Sabrina Carpenter teases “Skin” Music Video

Sabrina Carpenter demonstrated a couple of moments of “Skin” on Sunday (Jan. 31).

“SKIN MUSIC VIDEO TOMORROW 2pm PT,” she wrote on Twitter. “going live on my YouTube Channel right before at 1:40pm PT.”

“Maybe we could have been friends,” Carpenter sings in the clip, which shows a fast montage of what is by all accounts romantic scenes from a relationship.

Carpenter, who as of late endorsed with Island Records, surprise-released the tune on Jan. 22. Fans estimated it was a reaction to Olivia Rodrigo’s hit single “Drivers License,” because of bits of rumors about an adoration triangle including Rodrigo, Carpenter and Joshua Bassett. (In “Drivers License,” Rodrigo sings, “And you’re probably with that blonde girl/ Who always made me doubt/ She’s so much older than me/ She’s everything I’m insecure about.” In “Skin,” Carpenter sings, “Maybe you didn’t mean it/ Maybe ‘blonde’ was the only rhyme.”)

In any case, in an Instagram post a week ago, Carpenter said “Skin” “isn’t calling out one single person. some lines address a specific situation, while other lines address plenty of other experiences I’ve had this past year.”

“i wasn’t bothered by a few lines in a (magnificent) song and wrote a diss track about it,” she wrote. “i was at a tipping point in my life for countless reasons. so i was inspired to do what i usually do to cope, write something that i wish i could have told myself in the past. people can only get to you if you give them the power to. and a lot of people were trying to get to me.”
