CompositionEdit

"Ciao Adios" is a dancehall-inflected pop song.[3] The song's lyrics refer to a girl that finds out that the guy she is dating is cheating on her, and therefore she decides not to waste further time by leaving him: "Ciao, Adios, I'm done" (ciao and adiós are respectively the Italian and Spanish words for "goodbye"). The title is often misheard as 'Shower the horse, I'm done.' This led to a lot of internet debate and exposure, and eventually Ann Marie tweeted this alternative title as a sort of concession.
