There are many songs that talk about fake friends, but none sound as sweet as JoJo’s “FAB”. Don’t let the title mislead you. Fab is not short for fabulous. It’s short for Fake Ass B****. And it’s this slight deception (or fakeness) that works.
At first glance, this song might even sound a little laid back. It’s only somewhat powering up in the chorus, but this R&B track speaks truth like none other.
I think that anybody can relate. Everybody probably has one or two similar friendship stories they’ve lived through. This is why this song has become the anthem of the moment for many people. Including JoJo.
