The moment we’ve all been waiting for has finally come — Tegan Marie dropped her new single “I Know How To Make A Boy Cry” on Friday (June 1st)!
Written by the 14-year-old Country phenom alongside Grammy award winner Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift), Nelly Joy and Jason Reeves, Tegan says the self-worth anthem is not literally about making boys cry. Instead, it’s more about finding the inner strength to stand up for yourself and take the high road when romance turns sour.
“One of my favorite lyrics in the song is ‘my mascara’s waterproof’ because for me this goes way beyond just my go-to mascara,” shares Tegan. “It represents an attitude to have when someone hurts your feelings.”
Celeb Secrets Country caught up with Tegan in LA last month, where she spilled the tea on the new song. We’ve also heard it live at Tegan’s pop-up show at the Opry City Stage earlier this year, and it’s a MUST-LISTEN!
You can catch Tegan perform “I Know How To Make A Boy Cry” at the 2018 CMA Music Festival next week in Nashville.
