As she continues to gain fans and popularity, she is also making history. Sabrina Carpenter's hit single, "Espresso," continues to top the charts, even becoming her first number one on the global Spotify charts in April.

"Now he's thinkin' 'bout me every night, oh / Is it that sweet? I guess so / Say you can't sleep, baby, I know / That's that me, espresso / Move it up, down, left, right, oh / Switch it up like Nintendo / Say you can't sleep, baby, I know / That's that me, espresso," she sings in the song.

While the lyrics are catchy, many have wondered what the song actually means.

"There was something really exciting about the fact that there was so much personality throughout the entire song because those are the ones that are really, really fun to sing live with a crowd," she said in an interview with Apple Music. "Those are the ones that people, I think when they don't know my music or who I am or anything, they can just tune in to a single song and kind of leave with a better idea of my sense of humor."

Of course, the most popular part of the song is the verse where she sings: "I'm working late 'cause I'm a singer / Oh, he looks so cute wrapped around my finger / My twisted humor, make him laugh so often / My honey bee, come and get this pollen."

When talking about her latest hit, Sabrina told Apple Music, "This was one of those times in my life where it was just like, I just thought I was the sh-t in the moment. And I think you don't always feel that way, so you kind of have to capture those moments that you do because that's how you find those little."
