Sam Short releases a heart-wrenching pop single, entitled, “Taste It”

Sam Short is a rising singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles, California. Not too long ago, she released a lyric video for her heart-wrenching pop single, titled, “Taste It,” an ode to a cheating ex. Was she worth it? — the track’s very first line — is a question most people who have been cheated on can relate to.

“Now I feel her when you lay me down in your sheets, she got between us. She’s lying there right next to me ‘cause she got her way with you when she took my place. Oh, I hate that she knows how you taste and the roads that you take to your place. And the look that you get on your face when you’re wasted. Did you say it? That you loved her with hands on her waist. Oh, you swore it was all a mistake, but each time that we kiss, oh, I know that you miss how she tasted.” – lyrics

‘Taste It’ tells a heartfelt tale about a young woman who confronts her unfaithful significant other. Apparently, she wants to know if her partner’s infidelity was worth the risk. “Was she just what you needed and more?” she asks her partner. “Three years shattered all on the floor. Did she make it feel that easy to stay the night and leave me?” With a heavy heart, she adds, “So much for thinking that she was a friend. So much for thinking that you loved me then. You played a pretty good game of pretend, and I hate it.”

‘Taste It’ contains a sad narrative and ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with fans of Tate McRae, Olivia Rodrigo, and Maisie Peters. The emotive tune possesses luxurious instrumentation flavored with alternative and contemporary pop elements. Furthermore, “Taste It” exploded on social media ahead of its release, amassing over 10 million views on its teasers in only a few weeks. With over 20,000 pre-saves and growing, “Taste It” may be Sam’s biggest song yet.

“This is the most honest song I’ve ever written. It epitomizes my very first heartbreak. It details the visceral reaction that comes with betrayal, a feeling so painful you hate it, yet so real you can taste it.” – Sam Short explained

Also, she has received critical acclaim from major media publications. As a songwriter, she has contributed to the works of TikTok viral sensations Haiden, Rosse, and Jordyn Simone.
