Another social media platform, another place to bully musicians into posting music. SZA fans give him the motivation to release new music by making the unreleased tracks go viral on TikTok. After crying on her first album, CTRL, for the past three years, while also crying for her follow-up, her fans are so desperate that they are setting trends with clips she posted to her Instagram Story. “Just to keep you posted on my only priorities is to finalize the mv and the shirt for GOOD DAYS,” she tweeted in late January, referring to the next clip from another song that fans have l ‘begged to drop, “Good Days.”

The unnamed track, dubbed “Shirt” by fans, would be produced by Darkchild, the artist behind everyone from Spice Girls to Beyoncé to Lady Gaga. A YouTube video that loops “Shirt” clips until it looks like a full song has over 1.3 million views. On TikTok, over 1.3 million videos have used audio, many of which do a dance by a 17-year-old dancer named Brandon (@bgottfanns). Last December, he posted a groovy, popping dance that was so emotional you’d think he was freestyle. He immediately took; SZA tried it herself less than five days later, now earning over 5.8 million likes.

By mid-January the dancing turned into more jokes… and SZA still hasn’t given up on the song. Fans are also still waiting for the “Good Days” video, which she teased this week. Sigh. Spend time with the best of SZA’s “shirt” on TikTok.

The original. The undeniable. No one can do better, but they are desperate to try. I’m pretty sure the “bloodstain” is from him killing that.

James Charles commented on “omfg” so I think that means it’s okay to laugh at that. It’s the hands!

Lizzo has never encountered a dance challenge that she hasn’t taken on.

He hit it in slow motion so we could get a good look. This is called philanthropy.

“This guy from Cobra Kai”Put a literal twist on it.

If you don’t know the TikTok it refers to, you’ve missed a prerequisite. Go back and lose some brain cells on the #CorvetteChallenge.
