The world’s favorite internet girl is back and she’s here with a new song because it’s about damn time. This review is probably going to be a little shorter than usual. There’s not really much to say about the song.

“Computer Boy” follows Poppy’s, no longer with That in her name, formula of catchy lyrics with a powerful message with a beat that’s infectious that will make you shake your groove thang. Yes, I just said thang. The song itself isn’t as catchy as her past work but it’s up there. It also plays around with some EDM that sounds like something you would hear in a 16-bit video game when I would play when I was growing up.

The lyrics are all about loving that Computer Boy on her laptop. The lyrics are a social commentary on how we are so dependent on the internet. They are cleverly written with some hidden innuendos in there that really help make the relationship stand out. Poppy’s music still is addicting and get stuck in your head. “Computer Boy”

The music video is freaky as fuck but at the same time gets the point across. I’ve also noticed that Poppy loves herself men wearing full colored body suits as well as outdated technology. It really does help tell the story which is shocking because it’s just Poppy singing in front of a camera with an old school TV behind her that represents her boyfriend.

The song is catchy and mixes two genres together rather well. It’s not as strong as her past musical releases. The music video is still freaky as fuck but that is what you expect when Poppy is involved.

#FeaturedFriday Artist: That Poppy

Have you ever watched something on the internet and though what the actual f*** was that? You probably have because there’s a lot of weird shit out there. The internet gave us Justin Bieber and the Harlem Shake. Well, that’s pretty much summing up this artist. But we aren’t talking about just her YouTube videos, we are here to talk about the artist known as That Poppy, or simply just Poppy.

That Poppy seems to be the love child of Ariana Grande, Britney Spears, and Lady Gaga. It seems like, in theory, that it wouldn’t work but it surprisingly does. It’s like she was crafted in some sort of laboratory in a test tube. Created as the brain child of Titanic Sinclair, Poppy’s YouTube videos are stuff that probably would make more sense if you were heavily drugged out. They are short, sweet, and to the point. There’s also some sort meaning to them, which you will start to realize that hidden meanings are something Poppy is good at. Some of Poppy’s videos include her interviewing a plant, eating cotton candy, laying on the ground, and talking to a mannequin named Charlotte. THere’s also two long videos of Poppy reading the bible.

While no one knows a lot about Poppy, like her age or real name, the pop artist came onto the music scene with her first single “Lowlife” in the summer of 2015. The song is catchy and the music video is extremely creepy as f***. There’s a devil in it and her singing to a bunch of old men in suits, which was symbolizing the media. Most of what poppy does seem to have some sort of hidden meaning to the video. Literally, there are so many videos about the conspiracy theories portrayed in her video. Everyone seems to think that she’s a cult and a part of the Illuminati. But its art and like all piece’s of art, everyone sees the meaning of it differently.

Poppy seems to be a making a comment on teen pop idols and the way artist/celebrities are portrayed in the media in general. She looks like a young Britney Spears for the majority of the videos. Her songs are catchy and follow the protocol for catchy pop hits. It’s all everything

Her music is extremely good and makes me think I’m under some sort of spell. But her videos are scary and creepy. It’s a deadly combination and it works so well. I highly recommend listening to her but be warned: THE MUSIC WILL GET STUCK IN YOUR HEAD AND NEVER LEAVE.

Here’s some more of Poppy’s music. Here’s also a link to her YouTube channel.
