Double Tap

Album: #ByeFelicia (2014)
  • This song finds Sparks singing about an Instagram user who can't help but tap twice to show how much he likes a girl's photos. Sparks explained to Yahoo Music: "For me in the song, the girl is talking to the guy saying, 'I know you stalk my page. I know you look at the photos. I know that you don't like them. I bet you're not going to like that picture, but I know you like me.'"

    "But then you can take it another way as well, like you're in a relationship with someone," she continued. "Say we're sitting next to each other. Say we're together, right? I'm scrolling through my phone, and I hover over a picture of a really hot guy, and you're like, 'I know you're not about to tap that picture. I know you're not about to double-tap that picture in front of me.'"
  • Other songs that talk about the photo and video-sharing app include:

    "Daughters" by Nas ("She planted a box of condoms on her dresser then she Instagram-ed it. At this point I realized I ain't the strictest parent.")
    "Insincerely Yours" by Lily Allen ("I don't give a f--- about your Instagram. About your lovely house or your ugly kids.")
    "Tacky" by Weird Al Yankovic ("It might seem crazy, wearing stripes and plaid. I Instagram every meal I've had.")
    "Wiggle" by Jason Derulo ("I can make you famous on Instagram Hot damn it. Your booty like two planets.")
    "Payback" by Rascal Flatts ("Get some pictures on the Instagram and show him what he's missin' Straight no chaser, girl on a mission.")
    "Say I Won't" by Lecrae ("Autograph that forehead with a Sharpie pen and then Instagram. Might swag out a fanny pack. I might bring Velour back. Nobody wanna change the game, man.")
