GAYLE has gained popularity on TikTok thanks to her song “abcdefu” going viral on the platform. But what’s the song about, and what exactly are the lyrics? 

While TikTok has been the home of many viral dance trends, the short-form video app has also helped various creators gain popularity thanks to various talents like music.

In January 2021, Olivia Rodrigo took the site by storm with her song “drivers license” and in 2019, Lil Nas X’s popularity soared when he created the Yee-Haw challenge to promote his newest single, “Old Town Road.”

Now, Singer GAYLE has been gaining popularity for her angry breakup-inspired song “abcdefu” and many creators have turned it into the latest viral trend.

In July 2021, the singer was asked in a comment to create a breakup song by using the alphabet.

This lead to the creation of “abcdefu” and promptly went viral — with over three million views at the time of writing.

While the rest of the song can be found with just a quick Google search, we’ve provided the lyrics to the viral sound below:

I was into you, but I’m over it now
And I was tryin’ to be nice
But nothing’s getting through, so let me spell it out
A-B-C-D-E, F-U
And your mom and your sister and your job
And your broke-a*s car and that s**t you call art
F**k you and your friends that I’ll never see again
Everybody but your dog, you can all f**k off
