Looks to me, this might just be the song of the summer…or not.
Remember Friday? That annoying yet catchy song that turned Rebecca Black into an internet phenom for all the wrong reasons?
Well, there may just be just another song that will make you forget all about it.
The Stack Boys, a young rap group of prepubescent boys, has released a song and music video called “Snapbacks”, dedicated to…you guessed it, snapback caps.
With poor auto-tuning, a ton of “woos”, and some really bad video effects from the Photobooth option on a Mac, music fans will be shaking their heads once they hear this “rap” song.
With lyrics like, “I’m listening to people sounding stupid talking about stuff like drugs and acting like a thug/and I’m thinking “Stop!” you don’t make sense/”, all I can think is: How old are these kids?!
Maybe they should go outside and play. Because this “dope” music video might be something they’ll regret in the future.
Chris Brown is going downhill and has taken desperate measures. According to MTV News, after Brown’s dwindling sales from his new album, Graffiti, he has issued a message to his fans this week. The message asked to help revive his music career since he pleaded guilty to felony assault on Rihanna last year.
SayNow.com is a site that allows people to share recorded messages. Brown allegedly said it is hard to promote his new album since radio stations are not playing his songs. In an earlier message, he asked fans to keep in touch with him while on tour by dialing a special 877 number.
A spokeperson for the 20-year-old singer did not respond to MTV News’ request for comment, nor had confirmed the messages are definitely Brown.
Chris Brown has deleted his Twitter account just days after he used the site to lash out at retailers he accused of “blackballing” his newest album Graffiti, reports rollingstone.com.
“I wanna thank all my fans for their support,” Brown wrote in his final tweet on Dec. 14. “I love yall. Goodbye!”
Brown’s anger towards retailers initially focused on a Wallingford, Connecticut Walmart store, but the R&B singer expanded his rant to make a larger statement about how the industry views him after he pleaded guilty for physically assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna.
Representatives for several big retailers have said that Brown’s CD is actually “overstocked” at most stores, with Graffiti dramatically underselling the 150,000-175,000 copies it was expected to sell in its first week. One large chain said the album is selling at only 40 per cent of original expectations.
If you haven’t already gotten sick of the Chris Brown debacle, it doesn’t look as though this pop star is planning to lay low or neutral anytime soon.
Brown tweeted in frustration on Friday (December 11) about major stores, and the fact that he believes they are “blackballing” his new album, Graffiti. According to mtvnews.com, Brown tweeted “I’m tired of this sh–. Major stores are blackballing my CD. Not stockin the shelves and lying to customers. What the f— do I gotta do…”
The star, who is used to making public apologies lately, would not back down on his twitter accusation. He sent another message out implying that he would not be taking back what he said, though it had already infiltrated the Internet and was rapidly spreading. He even ended the note with an eloquent invitation for the music industry to kiss his ass. Stores have been hesitant to promote Brown’s newest album in note of his recent assault against then-girlfriend Rihanna in February.
The music video for Chris Brown’s new track “I Can Transform Ya” was released on MTV this morning. The song features two versus form Lil Wayne and chorus and beat contributions from Swizz Beatz. The track will appear on Brown’s new upcoming album ‘Graffiti’.
The original yet still catchy song is a great debut to launch the singer’s comeback after serving community service time for assaulting Rihanna earlier this year.
The video is filled with Brown’s characteristically cool modern dance sequences on a classic white background, and quick, colourful transforming graphics.
“I Can Transorm Ya” coincidentally debuts less than a week after the release of Rihanna’s “Russian Roulette” premiere.
Graffiti is set to release on December 15.
In May, Chris Brown posted a video online where he announced he’s working on a new album called “Grafitti.” Brown also said he planned on releasing a new single sometime in the summer. However, music is coming out before Brown intended.
“Countering misleading reports of ‘new’ Chris Brown music: there are no ‘new’ songs from Chris Brown currently being promoted by Chris or his record label,” said a representative for Jive Records in a statement. “There are several old demos circulating that are being falsely promoted as new material from Chris.”
According to MTV News, two singles have been released featuring Brown. These include “Not My Fault” and “Smash” .
Brown’s next LP has no official date of release according to MTV News.
After Brown’s alleged altercation with pop star Rihanna, he has been sentenced to 180 days of community service and five years’ probation.
