Y2K, bbno$ - Lalala

We have experienced our fair share of unusual songs and music videos that leaves us scratching our heads and we often think “How is this a hit single,” but it is either way and especially on platforms like YouTube; it goes on making more than a million views on any social media site. Y2K and bbno$ have done exactly that with their single “Lalala”. 

Their single “Lalala” is a great catchy beat like any other rap song nowadays; it really reminds you how cold Canada is when you start singing along to the lyrics and it encourages to stay in California, and not get cold nips from the great white north, but I digress. Aesthetically the video is awesome Y2K and bbno$ both really bring out nerdy white guy look whence rapping in a make-believe kids environment. The puppets appearing in the video stole the show because who doesn't want to see puppets rapping about Canada being cold and having Gucci on your body. It’s absolutely the perfect music video for a ride along with James Corden. 

Lalala is almost reaching 2 million views on Youtube and counting. The targeted audience dig the tune; they get “Charlie and the Chocolate factory vibes” from listening to this video and that’s the greatest thing I’ve read in the comment section from this video. Even though the hilarious antics portrayed before us are amusing to watch they have something here. Y2K is creating dialogue among their fans that keeps them tuned in and him in the spotlight in some fashion. Lalala is out now and dare I say it’s a good song with a weird video.

    Zeus Rebel Waters - "LUV" I have a soft spot in my heart for women on the pole, but an even softer spot for Zeus Rebel Waters.

  • SHY & D.R.S feat. JOSH SETTERFIELD - "FLEX"
    SHY & D.R.S feat. JOSH SETTERFIELD - "FLEX" Country has long been a polarizing, impenetrable genre subjugated to the “but..” of the sentence, “I listen to everything,”. In a time where cross-pollination is the only way to stay current, it's also a genre that has maintained its air of sovereignty, managing to slyly subvert the popsphere by pivoting… Read more
