Shut Up My Moms Calling

Album: single release only (2020)
Play Video


  • Hotel Ugly comprises brothers Chris and Mike Fiscella from Houston, Texas. The Fiscella brothers wrote and produced the track themselves and released it independently on February 10, 2020.
  • The track is about a girl the Fiscella brothers hooked up with in the past. While they still find her desirable, their love interest's feelings have cooled and she now behaves like she barely knows them.
  • The song title doesn't appear in the lyrics. It's unclear why the Fiscella brothers named the track "Shut up My Moms Calling," leaving out the apostrophe in "mom's" for good measure.
  • Upon release, "Shut up My Moms Calling" gradually picked up steam on social media. It featured in numerous TikToks and eventually entered the US and UK singles charts in early January 2023.
