STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING: Schapelle Corby Just Dropped A Pop Song
Remember last year when everyone was all “Goddamn 2017 was terrible in basically every regard, I can’t wait for 2018!”? Well, I’m very sorry to report that after just two days the evidence is already pointing to 2018 being another giant trash fire.
Yup – you read that correctly. The convicted drug smuggler turned Instagram Influencer has kicked off the year by releasing… a pop song. We don’t know why. No one asked for it, no one wants it, but like most terrible things it’s been foisted upon us regardless.
The song comes after Corby recorded herself singing an impromptu acapella on Instagram five months ago. The weird AF Instagram song was a sensation for all the wrong reasons and even inspired a remix by producer LLD. Here’s a refresher:
Flash forward to 2018 and Corby has backed herself with a full track in collaboration with producer Nat.Z.
The song’s video consists of a montage of images from Corby’s Instagram feed, along with the occasional palm tree. Because the song is called ‘Palm Trees’. Get it?
Sharing the video, Corby said:
“I wrote this in Cairns for a bit of a laugh and then took it into the studio to produce it and lay down our vocals. So much fun.”
Here’s the new song:
#Repost @nat_zelz : So it's taken me a little while to upload it but this is mine and @schapelle.corby's song Palm Tree's. I wrote this in Cairns for a bit of a laugh and then took it into the studio to produce it and lay down our vocals. So much fun. ????☺️???????? x #palmtrees #schapellecorby #music #studio #producer #musician #musicianlife #remix #queensland #iminqueensland #thisisqueensland @nat_zelz
The reaction to the track has been… mixed. Some of Corby’s followers are extremely into it, with one commenting “Great stuff Schapelle, look forward to hearing/seeing more”.
Another wrote:“Go girl love me some palm trees,”
But there’s plenty of people who think the track is awful (they’re right). “Wtf” and “I want to fucking die” are quite common reactions.
For some reason Sunrise appears to be non-ironically backing the song as “the catchiest song of 2018”, which it technically might be simply due to the fact very few songs have been released so far.
Schapelle Corby’s new single ‘Palm Trees’ is officially the catchiest song of 2018, ALREADY ???? pic.twitter.com/2jyrL3fcxk
