I heard this Karmin song titled Acapella, but I'm not sure what the meaning of acapella is as used in this song.
I've been googling the lyrics and I'm still not sure about the meaning of it. Can anyone explain what it means?

I think she may be confused regarding the actual meaning of the phrase "a cappella". She seems to be using it to state that she will be going solo - without whomever she's singing about.
"A Cappella" is an old Italian phrase - literally "in the style of chapel". Originally, it could be used to describe any facet of a church and its procedure. It made its way into common vernacular in the 19th century, used to describe the style of the purely vocal Cappella Sistina (Sistine Chapel) Choir. Over time, it came to describe any music without instrumental accompaniment.
You can certainly do a cappella solo.
