We’re a little over a week into 2015 and the music industry has already taken a turn for the weird.
Sophia Grace, the older sister of the tiara-and-tutu-wearing duo that is often seen on Ellen Degeneres, has come back with a new "rap" single called best friends. Unlike her first video "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun," Grace isn't hittin' the mall, she's hittin' up Kmart. Unfortunately, its catchy as hell.
So I'm not going to get into the whole 'why the hell is her record label/family doing this' because I don't want to be Debbie Downer today, but while this video could be funny and I am honestly taking it as a shot at rap and hip hop culture. We've seen all kinds of underground music being taken into the pop category, watered down, and made into something easily consumed and forgotten. As far as 2014 and 2015 are concerned, it looks like that is what is going to happen to rap (since it seems like no pop song is complete without some 30 second rhyme)
Enjoy this song for its ridiculousness but save hip hop!
