Hell surely hath no fury like a woman scorned. Marsha Ambrosius of the music group Floetry lays that fury over a smooth beat for her new single “I Hope She Cheats.”
The song describes the sentiment of a woman that is hoping for the worst for her ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend. Can we say hitting him where it hurts?
I’m no true expert of what makes men tick, but I do have a pretty good idea. Cheating on a man with a basketball player is sure to hurt his ego. What man wouldn’t be intimidated by wealth, stardom, and athleticism?
“It ain’t trickin’ if you got it,” as the song goes.
I have always been a fan of Floetry’s sultry love songs. They paint the perfect picture of love, intimacy, and satisfying your lover. Now, “I Hope She Cheats” paints a picture of bittersweet memories, lover’s scorned and a slap to the ego of an ungrateful man.
Although the song does explore thoughts that have run through my head before, I honestly wouldn’t like a song by Tyrese saying, “I hopes he cheats on you with a Supermodel.” If there was truly love in the relationship, do we really wish them more pain?
At some point in time, the bitterness wears off, but that comes after Ambrosius delivers the scornful melody that has definitely sparked up much anticipation to her solo effort: Late Nights and Early Mornings.
