February 1st, 2021 (Nashville, TN) While we’re working our nine-to-fives, how’s Cupid earning his pay? That’s exactly what Gabrielle Metz is trying to figure out in her new single “Hey Cupid.” In writing her love story, Metz has penned her chapter on longing. And it doesn’t feature the slow, moody, minor fall, major lift piano you might think it does. Instead, Metz uses an upbeat guitar riff and a steady drumbeat to propel her song into the chorus where she asks the almighty god of love to “put in some overtime” and “help a girl out” on the romantic front. Though she may not have found her “Mister Right” yet, Metz has surely used the past year to find the “Mister Right” of her sound. A bit more pop-influenced than some of her more recent singles (including “Christmas With You”, “Thin Ice,” and “Hear My Heart”), Christmas with you is nominated for Social Star World Wide’s Best Holiday Song of the year. Gabrielle Metz uses her new release “Hey Cupid” to fine-tune her sound and put herself back in the spotlight in the new year.

Hey Cupid lyrically is such a fun GNO anthem. Gabrielle respectfully calls out cupid with a very catchy melody. Lyrically you can hear the value Gabrielle places on love and what it’s like to wait in the wings for a turn. The song sets the mood for an anti-Valentine’s Day. Perfect for a car full of holiday boycotters driving around after school on Valentine’s Day as they scream the lyrics “I’ve been rolling solo for 19 years”. Gabrielle’s writing style and voice is reminiscent of an early Kacey Musgraves. She captures a perfect pop sound with her instrumentation. The guitar solo and punchy kick drum closer to the end of the song really amps up the sound and creates a heartbeat for that overarching theme of waiting on love.
