Aly & AJ Ring In The New Year With a New Version of "Potential Breakup Song"!
hand if you listened to Radio Disney growing up? I know your hand
is raised because we all did, let’s be real. On Radio Disney
and in-between shows on Disney Channel, you could frequently hearAly & AJ’s songs on repeat. "Like Whoa",
"Chemicals React", "Rush", and "Potential Breakup Song" are some
just to name a few. Plus, we can’t forget seeing Aly on "Phil
of the Future" and the duo in Cow Belles. As a kid, these
songs were forever on repeat on my iPod nano. My favorite song from
the duo was "Potential Breakup Song" even though I definitely
couldn’t relate to experiencing a breakup at the time.
However, the song's beat was good enough to catch my attention and
make it one of my favorites to this day. Over the years, I’ve
always wanted an updated version, and now Aly & AJ finally did
On December 29, Aly & AJ released an explicit version of their hit Potential Breakup Song. The song still has the same catchy beat, but now with lyrics that their growing fanbase can relate to, which led it to reach #1 on iTunes in the United States.
Below you can find the changes compared to the original:
THEN: “Except for the fact it was my birthday / my stupid birthday”
NOW: “Except for the fact it was my birthday / my f*cking birthday;"
THEN: “Let me repeat that / I want my stuff back”
NOW: “Let me repeat that / I want my sh*t back.”
THEN: “Before you nearly, nearly mess up”
NOW: “Before you nearly, nearly f*ck up.”
Fans of the duo took it to Twitter to voice their opinions of the updated version of the song.
