Though the wait for bbno$'s (pronounced baby-no-money) newest album eat ya veggies is almost over (it drops tomorrow, Oct 8th), the Canadian singer-rapper-songwriter has one last treat in store for us: newest single 'yoga' featuring the poster-girl for viral internet sensations, Rebecca Black!
Produced by Diamond Pistols, the disco influenced track is a musical match made in heaven, combining the best of bbno$’s witty wordplay with Black's sultry and seductive vocals, accompanied all the while by a production that just screams this year's summer party anthem. Talking about the single, Black says:
I was so stoked to jump on 'yoga' as soon as I heard it, it’s crazy how seamlessly we/bb/diamond pistols were able to put this together remotely - they absolutely killed it. Working with bbno$ has been outrageously fun and full of surprises at every step and I can’t wait for everyone to see the chaos we got ourselves into for the video. Jury’s out on who does bbno$ or RB better…ourselves or each other.
Said video (which, if you ask me, is another another viral sensation waiting to happen), is directed by frequent collaborator Shiraz and Michael Anthony, and sees both bbno$ and Black transform into drag queen/king versions of themselves as they quote: 'do a little yoga and do a little dance'.
I mean, if that isn't enough to pry you up from your lockdown couch I don't know what is.
Check it out below! And stay tuned for our review of bbno$'s new album 'eat ya veggies' dropping tomorrow!
