Ingrid Andress is ready for summer and being single on her new breezy song, “Waste of Lime.” The feel-good tune celebrates the liberation from leaving a guy who’s frankly been a waste of time, or as Andress smartly calls it, a “waste of lime.”

“You’re just a waste of lime, waste of a real good time / I guess I’ll be going home all alone / No Patron Silver lining, just an empty margarita,” the country songstress sings in signature Ingrid Andress fashion—with sass and wit. “Left me and this tequila high and dry / No drunk pickup lines, no ‘Your place or mine?’ / You’re just a waste of lime.”

Andress’ new tune, which features an undertone of The Beach Boys’ “Kokomo,” also dropped alongside a vibrant socially-distanced filmed music video filmed while maintaining social distance guidelines. Directed by Lauren Dunn (G-Eazy, Lauv, Megan Thee Stallion), the clip captures the singer celebrating her newfound freedom with comical antics that include dipping her luscious locks in a kiddie pool (with water and lime, or margarita) and singing to male mannequins.

Prior to this, Andress released her debut album Lady Like in March, via Warner Music Nashville. The eight-track collection includes her No. 1 hit single “More Hearts Than Mine,” “Both,” and the stunning new single, “The Stranger.” “Waste of Lime” also marks the balladier’s first uptempo release.
