Artist Yungblud is re-releasing a track from 2019 due to TikTok, but no, this isn’t because someone went viral singing along to it on a skateboard. Instead, Yungblud ran a duet contest on TikTok inviting fans to freestyle their own verse over his track ‘Parents’.
One of the most impressive entries was from a young singer-songwriter in Liverpool called Chloe Noone, and it went down so well, Yungblud invited her to a (Covid-safe) studio to re-record the track properly. It’s out now.
“When I saw it was re-emerging on TikTok I asked them if I should get an artist to remix it and who should that artist be. Then it occurred to me, this song is about us, it is a celebration of individuality and a celebration of the determination of my generation so i thought f**k it, I’m gonna release a record with one of my fans because this song is about my fans,” is how Yungblud described the collab.
TikTok, understandably, is throwing its weight behind the campaign too.
