Bingkai Karya – Indonesia’s pop darling Sheryl Sheinafia has finally completed her powerful trilogy of love and life lessons with the release of her latest single, “Threepeat.” Released on January 26, 2024, this track serves as the concluding chapter to the story begun with “Situationship” and “Dear Mr. Petty,” both released in 2023.
But “Threepeat” is more than just a song; it’s a mantra of self-care and independence. Taking its title from the words “three” and “repeat,” the track delves into the cyclical nature of unhealthy relationships, where patterns tend to repeat themselves like a broken record. Sheryl reflects on the desire for a fresh start, refusing to sacrifice her well-being for fleeting love.
“As an individual, I love to feel represented through empowering songs,” Sheryl shared. “As a musician, I love to share that energy with those who need it. ‘Threepeat’ is not only a mantra to love myself, but also a playful reminder that you don’t always get the love you give, and yet, life goes on.”
Musically, “Threepeat” is a vibrant celebration of newfound freedom. Catchy beats and playful guitar progressions complement Sheryl’s energetic vocals, perfectly capturing the sense of release that comes with breaking free from toxic bonds. The lyrics resonate with anyone who has ever gone through the emotional rollercoaster of an on-off relationship, with lines like “I think I’m over it, I’m so complete. Without you, I am everything I’ll ever need” serving as a powerful anthem for self-reliance.
But the story of “Threepeat” goes beyond the music. The accompanying artwork forms the final piece of a captivating visual trilogy, all utilizing the concept of passport photos. “Situationship” featured a blue backdrop reminiscent of a wedding photo, highlighting the dangers of rushing into serious commitments. “Dear Mr. Petty” saw Sheryl in a white shirt against a red background, resembling an ID photo, symbolizing the challenges of modern relationships, especially in the age of social media blockings.
And finally, “Threepeat” completes the journey with a white background like a visa photo. This imagery represents Sheryl’s newfound freedom and her readiness to move on, explore the world, and focus on her own growth.
Produced by Sheryl Sheinafia and Petra Sihombing, “Threepeat” will be featured on an upcoming EP alongside “Situationship,” “Dear Mr. Petty,” and alternative versions of all three tracks. Scheduled for release at the end of the first quarter of 2024, this EP promises to be a powerful collection of self-discovery and emotional liberation, solidifying Sheryl Sheinafia’s position as a voice for empowered women navigating the complexities of modern love.
So, get ready to dance, belt out the lyrics, and celebrate your independence with Sheryl Sheinafia’s captivating “Threepeat.” This is more than just a song; it’s a reminder that even after three rounds of emotional turmoil, true happiness lies in choosing ourselves and embracing the world with open arms.
