Jessie James Decker just released a new feisty breakup anthem!
The singer/songwriter and beloved personality shared her new single “Should Have Known Better” alongside a confident music video on Friday (Aug. 20). The song puts Decker’s confidence on full display as she bids farewell to an ex.
Directed by Kevin + King and filmed against a sunset backdrop in Joshua Tree, the music video features Decker metaphorically shedding a past relationship as well as her clothes before diving into a swimming pool.
“I’ve had my heart broken before – we all have, at some point in our lives,” Decker said of the song. “It doesn’t matter if it’s from a relationship ending or from people trying to tear you down. This song is all about not letting that pain break you and coming out of it on the other side strong and confident. Anyone who broke your heart will regret it most when you SHINE! Now roll those windows down and sing it at the top of your lungs!”
“Should have known better than to break my heart / Oh, ain’t it funny / No, I never looked better and it’s all your fault / Oh, sorry, honey / But it’s over, yeah, I moved on, hallelujah, hallelujah / Should have known better than to break my heart,” Decker sings during the anthemic new song’s chorus.

“Should Have Known Better” is just a taste of what’s to come from Big Yellow Dog / Atlantic Records / Warner Music Nashville recording artist Decker as she prepares to release new music and is expected to announce tour dates in the near future.
Following the single’s release, TikTok users began using the song as part of a new dance craze, which Decker’s daughter Vivi taught fans in a video.
“Love the videos you guys are making. Keep them coming!” Decker shared on Instagram, referencing all of the fans using her song for their dance videos, as part of the ‘Should Have Known Better Challenge.’
The Kittenish founder launched a contest, where one fan will win front row passes plus a meet and greet for you + 3 friends for a concert near you. The contest requires fans to record a video of themselves sharing their “glow up” OR doing Vivi’s dance.
Winners for the contest will be announced on August 29th.
