This week in the music-scape, anything goes! Back with another totally absurd song and accompanying dance move, I bring you Chi Ching Ching.
His newest single essentially cries out about the different ways you can prepare breadfruit. For those of you who don’t know, breadfruit is a fruit that has a texture that is, well, bread-y. It came to Jamaica via Hawaii and was initially regarded as an inexpensive way to feed the large slave workforce here. Today, it’s a loved favorite and is often served with breakfast. While you can boil breadfruit and eat it with savory dishes, the most common ways to prepare it are – you got it – roasted or fried.
My 13-year-old host sister Ari introduced this song to me by coming into my room and dancing around to it. It sort of took me back to the hyphy movement that took place when I was in high school and songs like “Fast (Like a Nascar)” and “Go Dumb” were a thing.
Anyway, enjoy this super silly new song.
