Jai Paul’s debut single has been floating around the internet for well over a year now, and the internet claims that it was originally a demo he cut in 2007 — but I wonder how long it will take for this to not sound like the future? Let’s try it out one more time.
Yep, only a few minutes later and it’s still working!
Best of all you can dance to it! And the internet shows a few ways how.
Too soon to tell if Jai Paul is a one-hit wonder or one for the ages. I’d say there’s a 50/50 shot he’s an artist a la Q Lazzarus or Mary Margaret O’Hara — more heard than seen. There’s worse fates than that. And, in fact, some might say it’s the height of aspiration.
Now for a video that sums up many themes from the post above.
