BoyWithUke ft. blackbear
RGM RATING (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)
An alternative gem that claps back at annoying exes.
Massachusetts-based musician, BoyWithUke, is an anonymous singer, songwriter, and producer. He gained recognition on TikTok as an infamous masked singer. BoyWithUke favors reflective alternative pop tunes, which usually take inspiration from artists like Twenty One Pilots, Milky Chance, and Dominic Fike. During an interview with Billboard, BoyWithUke stated that being bullied during childhood led to insecurities about performing. “Having the mask, it allows me to be myself without fear of judgment from others,” he said. The artist added that he wants listeners to focus on his music, not his appearance, although the lack of appearance gained attention. BWU’s music is available on Spotify, YouTube, and Apple Music, with millions of streams from each. His latest release is the single “IDGAF,” and it features artist blackbear. The song is a track off his upcoming album.
“IDGAF” sets a playful tone with a ukulele-driven melody, but the message isn’t so nice. It focuses on an ex who led someone to the edge. Lyrics like “You didn’t think twice / got a heart made of ice” and “I don’t mind if we speak again / I don’t wanna be cool, I don’t wanna be friends” reflect on anger at the unapologetic, toxic ex. However, despite throwing plenty of shade, a sense of humor keeps things from feeling too dark. The ukulele helps too, making it sound more beachy than toxic. This song has witty moments and contagious energy, and it never takes itself too seriously. This reflection on awful relationships is truly relatable, and it’s reached many audiences already. So, stream BoyWithUke’s “IDGAF” today to get that bad ex-energy out of your own life.
