American Idol’s Gabby Barrett Drops “I Hope” New Song (AUDIO)

American Idol finalist Gabby Barrett just dropped her new single “I Hope.” 

“I wrote ‘I Hope’ with Jon Nite and Zachary Kale some super talented guys that I absolutely love to death.” Gabby explains that at first the trio came up with a song about a girl wishing her ex well after a break up. “We sat around and thought about it and came to the idea of a song about a guy and a girl who didn’t work out. But the girl still wishes him well even [though] he’s moved on.”

But Gabby insisted, “That’s not how girls really think. We’re really like–I hope she ends up cheating on you because you did me wrong. I wanted it to be the things that we never say. For it to be that kind of song that empowers girls when they hear it.”

Check out “I Hope'” below.
