Bubblegum

Album: Talk Dirty (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This uptempo Jim Beanz and Timbaland produced tune finds DeRulo paying tribute to a girl with a large posterior.

    Got me bout to break my neck, tell me how you pop like that
    You do it like it ain't no sweat, I've never seen a bubble so fat
    You do it all day in the mirror, you practice all day in the mirror


    The booty enthusiast paid tribute to a stripper's butt on his previous single "Wiggle."
  • Young Money rapper Tyga drops a freaky verse in which he declares the way the girl drops her ass "make a grown man crazy."
  • Bubblegum was a genre of popular music popular in the late sixties and early seventies designed to appeal to children and young teenagers, who blew bubblegum. The Archies had the most successful bubblegum song in 1969 with "Sugar, Sugar." DeRulo's PG-13 ode to a girl with a "ghetto booty" is a million miles from those innocent pop tunes.
