Jennifer Smestad released her brand new song, “Can’t Have Mine” today, March 26th, and we’ve got the exclusive premiere of the lyric video. Check it out below.
Our latest Swag Spotlight artist, Jennifer Smestad, is a brand new talent that is one to look out for. The songstress is an incredible vocalist and even more impactful songwriter and storyteller. After her debut single “Half The Man” went viral, Smestad had big shoes to fill with a follow-up track. Rising to the occasion, today, the RECORDS Nashville artist and songwriter is debuting a powerful new single, “Can’t Have Mine”. Check out the exclusive premiere of the lyric visualizer in the video above.
“Can’t Have Mine” is a song that was intended to be about heartbreak, but what unveiled itself was an anthem for women everywhere. The lyrics convey the message that sometimes you have to walk away from a man who is not worth your time. If you’re ready for something serious and your partner’s desires are not lining up with yours, sometimes it is time to make a difficult decision.
“This is the third night in a row // I’ve stayed up way too late // Hoping this time it’s different // Some things just don’t change // What if I leave // What If I don’t // What if you see when I’m already gone // What if I’m all over your mind // and you let me walk away”
Dazzling in a white sweater and a coral skirt, Smestad meanders in a field as she sings this tune. The vibe of the video matched with the lyrics gives life to the already captivating song. Despite the melancholy nature of the track, the lyric, “You took your time // now you can’t have mine” showcases the hope and control women have over their lives. In this moment, Smestad took back her power, remembered who she was, and gave women everywhere the encouragement they need to live in their truth.
