American Idol 2018 winner Maddie Poppe releases another breakup song “Good Enough to Let You Go”

American Idol season 16 winner Maddie Poppe has released her latest single. On the heels of her last song “Screw You A Little Bit,” It’s another breakup tune titled “‘”Good Enough To Let You Go.”

Maddie defines herself in a “‘”new era”‘” of musical sound, with “Good Enough To Let You Go” being one of the first that captured the new direction she wanted to explore. “I wanted a disco-pop type vibe, but wanted to lean into the acoustic-R&B side of things as well, and this was the first song I felt that captured what I was going for,” Maddie explained in a press release. The song was co-written last year by Maddie Poppe, David Spencer and Bryan Simpson in Nashville, where the singer recently relocated.

Maddie feels the song and its emotion are relatable for just about everyone who’s ever felt trapped at one point or another. The song is about “being stuck in a situation or relationship for too long – and in a dark sort of way wishing it would end in the worst way possible, just so you’d have a reason to close that book forever,” she said. “Oftentimes, things fizzle out or end cordially on their own, which can make it too easy to open that door again.”

Breakup songs come in the wake of splitting up with longtime boyfriend Caleb Lee Hutchinson

Maddie broke up with longtime boyfriend Caleb Lee Hutchinson last year whom she met on American Idol. In a recent interview, Maddie shared that her last song “Screw You a Little Bit” was a breakup song, but was NOT about her relationship with Caleb.

I will always have a place in my heart…about that relationship. I will only look back fondly on that relationship. There is no bad blood there,” she stated in an interview with Iowa radio station KWAY.
