Abigail Breslin has taken her first big step into the music industry (and by step, we mean she straight-up jumped in with a bang).

The actress—who is best known for her roles in Little Miss Sunshine, My Sister's Keeper and Ender's Game—released her first-ever music video today. Yep, she's a singer now.

And if you're expecting a happy-go-lucky, feel-good pop hit, you're in for a surprise. Because instead, Breslin chose to rock out while calling out some of her former flings by dissing practically everything about them and ultimately telling them, "You Suck."

She sings about hating a guy's "dumb tattoos" and wanting to send him "to the moon."

The chorus goes, "I bet you're going to hear this song/ I bet you're going to sing along and tell your friends how I'm obsessed with you/ And I bet you didn't know that you sound like a girl /Every time you call me when you're drunk/ And all that I want to say/ Is you really suck."

"I get inspiration from guys—they're obviously a huge source of information—living in New York, and my friends and experiences we have," Breslin told Teen Vogue, who premiered the video. "In your teen years, everything is kind of heightened—I started feeling like that when I was 16. It was like every emotion I could possibly feel was intensified by a million."

"This is a song I wrote about those guys who are players and use people and just generally aren't really good people," she said. "It's about things I've witnessed—it's not OK when guys don't have respect for girls. I wrote it in the heat of the moment, and I think a lot of people will relate to it."

OK, so the obvious question is who is she singing to?! Fans have been speculating and have come up with two possible conclusions: either Jack Barakat or 5 Seconds of Summer singer Michael Clifford. Or maybe both?

While she doesn't reference anyone by name (obvs), the lyrics do give some clues.

Breslin references some of Clifford's stand-out physical traits, including his bleached hair and the scar above his eye. But then, she also sings that the guy in question "sounds like All Time Low," which points the finger at Barakat because that's the name of his band.

Hmm...E! News has reached out to reps to try and solve this mystery.

"You Suck" is part of her debut, 12-song album that's being released this coming April.
