American singer-songwriter, Taylor Gayle Rutherford, known professionally as Gayle came through with this song she labeled “abcdefu” which was officially released on August 13, 2021.
A defiant take on the aftermath of a breakup, “abcdefu” stands as an empowering female anthem. The track is the fifth single of GAYLE’s music career and the debut release with her “dream” label, Atlantic Records.
Throughout the song, GAYLE sings about a particular breakup that she went through and the real feelings it evoked in her. Initially, GAYLE wanted to be the bigger person and be considerate towards her ex, but her unfiltered feelings inevitably escape her. She literally and figuratively spells them out.
With Pete Nappi at the helm of production, the composition of “abcdefu” is driven by an electric guitar, which plays a palm-muted riff throughout the verses. It provides a subdued counterpart to the chorus, where power chords accentuate the main lyrical motif of the song. Though predominantly pop, the production’s guitar and drum-powered backing veers the song into pop-rock territory.
The breakup song eventually rose to fame on TikTok, thus making its way onto a variety of popular playlists, catapulting the song’s rise. It also broke into the top 10 of dozens of countries, most notably the UK and Germany, as well as being #15 on the US Billboard Hot 100.
A-B-C-D-E, F you
And your mom and your sister and your job
And your craigslist couch and the way your voice sounds
Fuck you and your friends that I’ll never see again
Everybody but your dog, you can all fuck off
