Soon after releasing her single, “I Hope,” Gabby Barrett is treating fans to a tasty payback video for the new single.

In the recently released video, Gabby pulls double duty, not only performing the uptempo tune, but portraying the scorned main character. The cheating video kicks off in the beginning of a happy relationship between Gabby and her boyfriend. In the sexy three minute clip, the couple starts off lovey-dovey, only to see things dissolve as the other women enters the picture.

What started out in the writing room as a song about a relationship gone awry with the girl still wishing the guy well in his new relationship, turned a different way when Gabby revealed how girls really think when they find themselves betrayed.

“I said, ‘‘That’s not how girls really think.’ We’re really like, ‘Well, I hope she ends up cheating on you because you did me wrong,’ Gabby said. “That’s kind of what this song is about.”

No ifs, ands or buts about it, that’s what the song is about. Add in Gabby’s robust vocals and the effect is chilling.

“I hope she comes along and wrecks every one of your plans / I hope you spend your last dime to put a rock on her hand / I hope she’s wilder than your wildest dreams /She’s everything you’re ever gonna need / And Then I hope she cheats / Like you did on me / And Then I hope she cheats /Like you did on me,” she sings in the chorus.

And wouldn’t you know it, in the end, the guy finds himself in the same position Gabby started out in.

Bam! Payback’s a [email protected]#$.
