It just so happens it was also the rising pop singer-songwriter’s birthday and the appearance marked her first-ever talk show performance. “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon introduced FLETCHER calling “Undrunk” his “JF jam of the week,” adding he loves the song.
The lyrics employ catchy wordplay as FLETCHER sings about someone she can’t get over. She tries to nurse her misery by getting drunk at a party and looking for a rebound – which ultimately makes her feel worse.
Her angst rang through as she belted the chorus, “Wish I could get a little un-drunk so I could un-call you/At five in the morning, I would un-f**k you/But some things you can't undo/I wish I could un-kiss the room full of strangers/So I could un-spite you, un-lose my temper/ But some things you can't undo/And one of them's you.”
FLETCHER looked lovely for her milestone “Tonight Show” gig. She rocked a burgundy pantsuit and pulled her hair back in sparky barrettes which spelled “Woman.”
FLETCHER co-wrote “Undrunk” credited as Cari Elise Fletcher with Amy Rose Allen, Jeremy Dussolliet, Malay Ho, and Timothy Paul Sommers. She burst onto the music scene with her 2015 single “War Paint” and released her debut EP, Finding Fletcher, in 2016. She notably entered the Billboard Hot 100 for the first time with “Undrunk” landing at No. 85 for the week of March 23.
Hours before appearing on the show, FLETCHER tweeted her excitement over the chart feat and her upcoming performance writing “It’s my birthday, Undrunk made its debut on the Billboard Hot 100 and I play Jimmy Fallon in less than 24 hours. What the fu-- I am the most confused and emotional and nervous and grateful and excited scared.” (See her post below).
FLETCHER has previously appeared on AXS Patio Sessions. During her interview, she spoke of her lifelong love of music saying, “Music has really been just a constant throughout my entire life.” She also discussed how challenging it is to be vulnerable and open to others during the songwriting process.
A sense of raw vulnerability comes through in “Undrunk,” which many listeners who are feeling the sting of missing someone can relate to.
