Sabrina Carpenter “Why” Video Is Suitably Whimsical
Sabrina Carpenter casually dropped one of the year’s catchiest pop songs in early July. Co-written by Leland (Troye Sivan’s “Youth” and Selena Gomez’s “Fetish”), “Why” finds the 18-year-old dabbling in electro-pop. “Tell me how we’re not alike, but we work so well and we don’t even know why,” the rising star chirps on the chorus. “You can call it fire and ice, but we work so well and we don’t even know why.” There’s even a very on-trend drop, which evokes Kiiara’s “Gold” and Kygo & Selena’s “It Ain’t Me.”
The talented teen, who has come a long way since breezy country-pop of debut EP Can’t Blame A Girl For Trying, drops the video today (July 20) and it effortlessly taps into the song’s overarching theme of opposites attracting. Sabrina hangs out with her boyfriend (played by Riverdale actor Casey Cott) and generally does cute things like argue about horror movies and take a lot pics. There may or may not be a sad twist (it’s a little unclear), but the video is a suitably whimsical accompaniment to the song. Watch up top.
