Jan. 29 (UPI) -- Joshua Bassett is back with new music.
The 20-year-old singer and actor released a single and music video Thursday for the song "Only a Matter of Time."
In "Only a Matter of Time," Bassett sings about a lying ex and the karma that will leave them "drowning in regret."
"Well, it's only a matter of time to set it straight / Time to tell the world that you've been lyin' on my name / Doin' what you want and think you're gonna get away / Well, I'll leave it up to faith for now," he sings.
The song's release follows drama with Bassett's High School Musical: The Musical: The Series co-star and rumored ex-girlfriend Olivia Rodrigo and his reported new girlfriend, actress Sabrina Carpenter. Rodrigo released a song, "Drivers License," this month, in which she appears to address a love triangle between herself, Bassett and Carpenter.
In "Drivers License," Rodrigo sings about missing an ex who has moved on with a blonde girl.
"people can only get to you if you give them the power to. and a lot of people were trying to get to me," the singer and actress said. "the song isn't calling out one single person. some lines address a specific situation, while other lines address plenty of other experiences I've had this past year."
Rodrigo and Bassett play Nini Salazar-Roberts and Ricky Bowen on High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, which airs on Disney+. Carpenter starred on the Disney series Girl Meets World.
