Clouds (with Fin Argus - 2020)
This song is so catchy! This is the last of the covers from the movie Clouds, and in fact, this is the song that gave the real Zach Sobiech his current level of fame. This is my favorite of the four covers from the film, because it’s so whimsical and sweet. Lyrically, the song is about remaining optimistic for better days. Both Sabrina and Fin’s vocals in this are so wonderful and pure, and the two of them have amazing chemistry together. This is a must-listen for any Sabrina Carpenter fan!
Hope you all enjoyed the brief reboot of this countdown, even if it was just cover reviews

Album: Non-album single (2021) Standout lyric (in a negative way): "You can try to get under my skin, while he's on mine"
Two weeks ago, Olivia Rodrigo released her song "Drivers License," a beautiful confessional about how much she's hurting due to the loss of her lover. Olivia's song has blown up in the last two weeks, breaking numerous records, topping the Billboard Hot 100 and skyrocketing up the Mediabase Pop chart. The song was rumored to be about her ex Joshua Bassett, who is now dating Sabrina Carpenter. These rumors were more than confirmed when Sabrina released this song, "Skin," which is a diss track about Olivia. In honesty, this song makes me a bit embarrassed to be a fan of Sabrina. Sabrina comes off as shockingly tone-deaf in this song, repeatedly taunting Olivia with lyrics such as "you can try to get under my skin, while he's on mine" and "I'm happy and you hate it." Olivia's song was simply a confessional stating how much she was hurting due to losing Joshua, but Sabrina comes off as mean and rubbing it in her face in this song. Olivia did vaguely hint that her song was about Sabrina when she mentioned a "blonde girl," but the song was very kind towards this "blonde girl" and did not disparage or diss her at all. This is why Sabrina's song comes off as a completely inappropriate and petty attack on Olivia. There was just no need to completely run over Olivia's metaphorical car with a steam tractor, which is very much how Sabrina comes off in this song.
The production of the song is decent and catchy, but it's really hard to get past the obvious and cruel attack on Olivia in this song. It also feels gross, because it feels very much like Sabrina saw an opportunity to get some quick fame capitalizing off the drama, so she decided to make a song. Moreover, the fact that Olivia had just made a comment days ago about the Internet rumors saying that it didn't really matter who the song was about, and she wanted to keep it private, makes it all the more inappropriate that Sabrina would turn this drama into something very public. It was incredibly disappointing to wake up to see Sabrina had released "Skin" this morning. This song is dead last in my rankings of Sabrina's songs, even below "Hold Tight" and "I Can't Stop Me," both of which I hate. This is arguably a very low point of her career that I imagine will have lasting implications to her success, which is unfortunate but very deserved IMO for this completely inappropriate response to "Drivers License." I truly hope Sabrina realizes what a bad idea it was to release this song, because if this is the person Sabrina wants to be, I think I've lost some respect for her.
