Alt-pop singer/songwriter BAUM (née Sabrina Teitelbaum) has unveiled the no fucks given self-loving anthem, “Fuckboy”, on the heels of the announcement that she’ll be releasing her sophomore EP Curve, which will follow up her 2018 debut Ungodly. Speaking on the meaning behind the track, Teitelbaum shared, "I feel like the narrative people are always putting on women is the “boy meets girl, girl falls in love instantly, boy breaks girls heart” story. I wanted to sing about something different. It’s obviously not good to be a fuckboy, but women aren’t emotional wrecks running around searching for love, looking to be saved, yet I feel like that identity is constantly being placed on us."
In addition to the track, she’s also shared an accompanying video directed by Marcella Cytrynowicz, who's worked creating videos for Snoop Dogg, JOYRICH, Capitol Records, Yellow Claw, Happy Socks, and Nike. It centers around two dancers and their interaction with one another, first mirroring each other's movements to eventually dancing independently at the end. "This is meant to mimic how we interact with people we are involved with, the games we sometimes play, and how we can ultimately find power in independence," Teitelbaum said of the video. "The storyline, particularly that of the female dancer, is meant to offer an alternate narrative to that of the “overly emotional woman” we frequently see in the media and mainstream entertainment."
