In life, you’re bound to come across certain two-faced, disingenuous people. And if that experience has left a bitter taste, we’ve got the perfect song to describe your feelings, courtesy of Jojo’s latest music video.
“FAB.”, in case you’re curious, is not an acronym for fabulous. Oh no, in Jojo’s world, “FAB.” stands for “fake ass bitches”. To put it frankly, the 25-year-old singer is out here putting them bitches in their rightful place.
While roaming the gritty streets of New York City, the songstress calls out the fake friends and jealous ones that need to be cut from her life. The lyrics to “FAB.” also condemns those who talk behind people’s backs, mistake kindness for weakness, or conveniently disappears when you need them the most.
“When they smile in your face, but behind you it ain’t well wishes/ When they eatin’ all the food off your plate and they don’t do dishes /When they words and they actions blur and they don’t know different/ No time for these fake ass bitches,” sings Jojo on the hip-hop-tinged pop track, which features rapper Remy Ma.
Both ladies unapologetically throw up their middle fingers in “FAB.” and somehow, the 3-and-a-half minute black-and-white footage makes their gesture even more badass. If anything, the song’s message is an inspiration to trim the dead weight from your life.
“I wrote that on the treadmill. I was literally singing in my head, and I was like I can’t stand these fake ass bitches in my face. I was like, you know what? I’m not cut out for the shmoozing and the fakeness. I literally can’t stand it. I know I’m not the only one that can relate to that. Sometimes [the music] industry can feel a little bit like high school so I was just reflecting on that and pounding it on the treadmill. I came to the studio that night and I was like, listen we gotta talk about these fake ass bitches,” the pop singer previously told Entertainment Weekly.
