You know that feeling you get when you’re waiting for something to happen, but you can’t remember what it is? Well, let me remind you about this Thursday – which is the day Die Antwoord’s new mixtape Suck on This finally drops from the sky and into our collective headphones like a metaphorical musical meteorite from out of space.
Last week, the South African zef masters treated listeners to a short dose of the mixtape with “Dazed & Confused”, and today they’ve offered up another with “Bum Bum (ft. God)”, a sparse, trippy track that’s all about what you think it’s all about .
“A girlfriend of mine sent me a voice note in a VERY Spanish accent, that ended something like: ‘I LIKE TATTOOS BUT I WONT GET A TATTOO ANYWHERE, EVEN IN MY BUM.’” Ninja explained in a statement. “She obvz meant ‘ON MY BUM’ but she don’t speak English too good, so this little mistake suddenly popped a lil idea into my head!”
“She sent a voice note back saying what I asked her to say... then I asked my boy GOD to bang me out a hot beat to run with this hype ‘EVEN IN MY BUM’ loop. GOD whipped dat shit up in like 7 minutes, send it back. Then I bust some romantic porno rhymes over that shit, slapped a crazy fuckin’ romantic Spanish hook on it, got some girlfriends to add some sexy phrases. And that’s how this beautiful banger got born.”
So, urgh, yeah. Listen below:
