“Sweetest Revenge” by new artist Libby Whitehouse is a blend of witty lyricism over an anthemic and energetic beat. The song plays heavily into the healed phase after a breakup. With lyrics like “I know you want what you can’t have it’s tough,” and  “I swear I’ll never settle again if it’s average,” Libby provides an empowered perspective that is focused on having fun, loving oneself, and curving exes. “Sweetest Revenge” is for when you’re done being sad about the breakup and are ready to head into your glow-up phase because after all, “The sweetest revenge is me looking this good.”

With summer in full swing “Sweetest Revenge” enters the scene just in time as the perfect post-break-up anthem of the season. Libby’s cadence and attitude are reminiscent of 2010 pop stars melded together with the pop beats of recent years. There is a lot of energy in “Sweetest Revenge” making for a positive perspective on breakup songs. Libby talks about the inspiration for her previous song “Fired” saying she wants anyone who is experiencing a breakup to feel empowered, “If you’re going to cry over a boy, at least dance around the kitchen looking hot whilst doing it.” Her recent release is another addition to that with “Sweetest Revenge” being an anthemic dose of positive image reframing after a crappy breakup.  

New to the scene, Libby Whitehouse released her first single “OMG” in February of 2024 gaining 435,000 streams on Spotify alone. Her debut EP Sweetest Revenge, released May 31st, 2024,  features her three singles “Sweetest Revenge”, “Fired”, and “OMG”. The Brighton-based pop star draws inspiration from pop icons Elton John, Katy Perry, and Miley Cyrus hoping to create pop songs that inspire Gen Z’ers. Libby says, “I want my music to be a safe space for people to celebrate life and to express themselves.” She believes in the importance of doing what makes you happy and wants to encourage her fans to be unapologetically authentic no matter what anyone thinks. Libby’s social media following gained the attention of global brands PUMA and Sprite recently, earning her a spot as a headliner for Camden Assembly on May 28th, 2024.
