Carrie Underwood is happily married to her husband, Mike Fisher, but her music still resonates with people at different stages of life. In November 2022, Underwood released a music video for “Hate My Heart,” a breakup song. Check out the music video below.
Underwood has released her country album Denim & Rhinestones in June 2022. The album is Underwood’s ninth studio album and marked her return to country music after releasing a gospel album called My savior in 2021.
“Hate My Heart” was released as a single after the release of Denim & Rhinestones and it is the second single from the album.
With the song, Underwood sings from the perspective of someone struggling to move on after a breakup.
During the chorus, Underwood sings, “I hate my heart now / Under the covers in the dark / I wish I was sitting in a bar right now / Two drinks in / Make me your last friend / I want my feel-good back / Rather than smack me badly feeling that I can’t get past/ The fact that I can’t love anyone else/ I would if I could but I don’t know how/ I’m hating my heart right now / Yes, I’m hating my heart right now.”
After “Hate My Heart” was selected as a single, Underwood released a music video for the song on November 4, 2022.
The music video begins with several women, including Underwood, slamming doors in ex-partners’ faces. The women then write how “done” they are while Underwood shows up on stage with a band.
Between scenes of Underwood performing the song, Underwood and the women are seen working out, eating ice cream, and shopping online while trying to recover from their breakup.
Underwood then suggests that the group should date women, and the group goes to the concert where Underwood is performing “Hate My Heart”.
Underwood, who has gone through a breakup, surfs the crowd until she takes the stage with singing Underwood, and they sing “Hate My Heart” together.
At the end of the music video, Underwood’s character leaves the concert with her friends. As they all walk out, she winks at the camera and says, “I could totally be a rock star.”
In an exclusive segment with Entertainment Tonight, Underwood shared what it was like directing the “Hate My Heart” music video.
“It was a lot of fun to shoot,” Underwood said. “I have to ride a mechanical bull, I have to crowd surf. It was just a good time.”
The singer also explained the meaning behind “Hate My Heart” and the specific type of breakup song it is.
“‘Hate My Heart’ is a song about a breakup. It’s like you don’t really want to be with them again, but you’re having a hard time moving forward,” Underwood told Entertainment Tonight.
