“Why” is Sabrina Carpenter’s first single from her yet-to-be-announced third studio album. The track was released on July 7th, 2017.
The song is talking about her and a guy being completely opposite, but they’re made for each other.
She talked to Billboard about her first single and said
This song happened very quickly. We started with the first line of the song – ‘You like New York City in the daytime; I like New York City in the night time’ – and from there, the song kind of wrote itself. It’s basically [about] these differences that we all have, that keep us different from one another but at the same time glue us together. … I like to say it’s very conversational, which some of my other songs haven’t been before.
She briefly gave a descriptive story behind her new single “Why”, this is what she had to say;
The first line that started the song was “You like New York City in the daytime / I like New York City in the nighttime,” and once we found that line, we started going off on finding these little things that make us different from each other, but they’re not deal-breakers. You know, we have differences with people, but it doesn’t mean we can’t get along, it doesn’t mean that [they] have to tear us apart and we can use them to keep us together and make us stronger.
