There’s a new hot hip hop song bubbling up on TikTok, with more than 1 billion views. The last song that had this much buzz on the social media platform, MTO News has learned, was Lil Nas X’ Old Town Road.
But there’s one thing different about this new hip hop song – it’s made up of complete gibberish.
The song is by a rapper named Dville Santa and it’s called “Laboratory/Like A Meebo.” If the name is confusing, you have to listen to the song.
The reason for it’s popularity, according to the song’s proponents, is:
it’s used to perfectly capture that feeling of trying to explain your point of view, or something that you’re passionate about to someone who doesn’t understand, doesn’t care, fully agrees with you anyway so it doesn’t matter or maybe even knows more than you and can see through the bs you’re spilling.
Whether the nonsense comes from the talker, the listener, or a little bit of both, it’s a very human experience of feeling like you’re not being heard, or maybe that even you don’t fully understand the topic you’re rambling about.
The song dropped back in April of 2021. On April 29, 2021, TikToker and rapper Dville Santa dropped the first hint of track on TikTok. He wrote “i was told to bring this to tik tok ♂️ if i drop the full song imma go triple vibranium”
