As I am sure you know Earth Day was Monday April 22 of 2019. In the recent years a lot of people have thought about the outcome of how we treat the earth and we have tried to start changing and making the earth better. Lil Dicky decided to be one of those to take a stand for mother earth. He released a hint on twitter on April 9th that he would be releasing a song later on that next week. There was some talk of Justin Bieber collabing with him. Bieber then confirmed that he would be in this new song Lil Dicky would be releasing.
On april 17th Lil Dicky released a short preview of what the song was going to be. The link below was that preview. In the video it shows 30 names of popular celebrities and artist, and the name of the song “Earth”. This really grabbed a lot of people’s attention. I mean how could it not. He really got some of the most popular artist right now in this song. First off Ariana Grande one of the most iconic pop stars right now. Then Ed Sheeran the voice that makes everyones heart grow a little bigger. But the you throw in Shawn Mendes, Sia, Miley Cyrus, Halsy, Justin Bieber, Zac Brown, Wiz Khalifa, Brendon Urie, Hailee Steinfeld, Snoop Dogg, Kevin Hart, Adam Levine, Charlie Puth, Lil Jon, Miguel, Rita Ora, Katy Perry, Lil Yachty, and oddly enough Leonardo Dicaprio. Then not only did he get all of those bug names, Meghan Trainor, Joel Embiid, Tory Lanez, John Legend, Backstreet Boys, Bad Bunny, Psy, Kris Wu all were on the track as well. I mean talk about reaching all types of listeners. He has got so many different genres mixed in.
The music videos finally released April 18th 2019. Just a few days before Earth day. The video is very creative. It starts out with just Lil Dicky talking to some boys that were messing around throwing and knocking trash around. Then the song starts, but it changes to animation. All of a sudden we are taken all around the world to all of these animals, which turns out each animal is a different artist. Such as Ariana being a Zebra, or Shawn Mendes as the Rhino, or Wiz Khalifa as the Skunk. Everyone is an animal except for Leonardo who is played by himself, Kanye West who is played but Kevin Hart, and of course Lil Dicky who plays the man.
The whole message of the song is too love the earth as the Lyrics say “We love the Earth, It is our planet”. The song also talks about how everyone should just love each other and have peace and happiness. Something everyone needs to be reminded of every so often. This song is very creative and is getting a lot of popularity right now. The song does use some language that was made for an older audience. It gives it more of a humores light hearted theme. Over all “Earth” is a great song to listen too, and is not a waste of your time. Here’s the video,
