Temperatures really are rising.
On Monday, Aug. 1, Fletcher dropped the official music video for her new single, “Becky’s So Hot.” The three-minute clip is all about the star fantasizing over her ex’s new girlfriend, and guess what? She recruited none other than Bella Thorne to play Becky. The two stars’ on-screen chemistry is absolutely everything.
The video begins with Fletcher alone in bed pleasuring herself before she has a fantasy about making out with her ex’s girlfriend. “I don't really blame you 'cause / damn, the waist, the hips, the face / this is awkward,” Fletcher sings on the track about her ex and their new partner. “Are you in love like we were? If I were you, I'd probably keep her.”
Fletcher revealed in a press release that her single is partially based on a true story. “I wrote ‘Becky’s So Hot’ a couple [of] years ago after I was creeping on my ex’s new girlfriend’s Instagram while I was in the studio,” she said. “I accidentally liked a picture of her wearing a vintage T-shirt of my ex’s, one that I’ve worn before.”
The singer references this situation in her song’s chorus with the lyrics, “Becky's so hot in your vintage T-shirt / She’s the one I should hate / but I wanna know how she tastes.”
While the idea for “Becky’s So Hot” was inspired by something a real-life situation, Fletcher made the song into something more by the complex endings to a breakup. “It felt more interesting to me to write something from the perspective of being in awe of [Becky],” she said. “Sort of like ‘damn… it kinda stings that she’s so hot, but I can’t even be mad about it because I get it…she’s hot.’”
So, who is Becky IRL? It’s likely Becky Missal, who is reportedly dating Shannon Beveridge, a YouTuber and Fletcher’s ex-girlfriend. Beveridge also reportedly inspired Fletcher's third EP, The S(ex) Tapes, which dropped in September 2020. She even directed Fletcher’s music video for “Shh...Don’t Say It.”
“Becky’s So Hot” will be featured on Fletcher’s upcoming debut studio album, Girl Of My Dreams, which will drop on Sept. 16.
