2KBABY releases music video for new single ‘LAZY SONG REMIX’: Kentucky rapper puts his own spin on Bruno Mars’ 2010 hit “The Lazy Song…”
Louisville raised rapper 2KBABY took his own swing at a popular trend among rappers nowadays. On June 7, 2KBABY took to TikTok to preview his remix of “The Lazy Song,” the 2010 smash hit from pop-star Bruno Mars.
Recently, rappers have been remixing some of their favorite pop hits from their childhood. First, Lil Tjay did so in December with his song, “None of Your Love,” which interpolates the melody and instrumental from Justin Bieber‘s RIAA Diamond certified song “Baby (feat. Ludacris).” Tjay had been sitting on the song for a while waiting for clearance from Justin Bieber, tweeting a thank you to Bieber once he did so.
The song and music video, particularly Ace’s “who I smoke” hook, went viral because of its playful use of the original sample. Vanessa Carlton took to Twitter to defend Ace from critics and support the song in May.
Now, we have 2KBABY’s “LAZY SONG REMIX.” In the video for the original “The Lazy Song,” by Bruno Mars, he is seen chilling at his house, with men wearing monkey masks. At the time, the bizarre nature of Bruno Mars’ video concept took the world by storm, leading to the song’s incredible popularity.
For his version, 2KBABY employed the same idea of surrounding himself with men in monkey masks for his video. Rather than singing about laying in bed and not wanting to answer his phone like Mars did, 2KBABY raps about his opps on the chorus.
Nowadays niggas click up with any gang, woah
I just wanna see ’em all dead, yeah
I’m too high, can’t pick up my phone
This new opp pack smoke way too strong
Stop asking me, I’m not squashing anything
Nothing at all“LAZY SONG REMIX” — 2KBABY
It is only a matter of time before this catches Bruno Mars’ eye, and 2KBABY would surely hope he is as receptive as Bieber and Carlton were to this trend. In the meantime, check out 2KBABY’s creative spin on a pop classic below.
