Hung Up

Album: Single release only (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This was the first song to be released from Pop-Rock band Hot Chelle Rae's sophomore album. The band wrote the track in early 2011. "On this next album, we have some material that's a little bit more of a throwback, but this one felt like it was the right song at the right time," said frontman Ryan Follesé to Billboard magazine when the track was first made available.
  • While the song details Hot Chelle Rae being hooked on a girl they can't resist, the PR Brown-directed video set in Los Angeles follows each band member with a crush on the same blonde. However, each of the quartet have their pursuit thwarted by what appears to be a technical malfunction.
