Hi there, Recording Academy? I’ve a belated suggestion for this yr’s Grammy nominations that I urgently want you to contemplate. It is just a little out of left subject and admittedly not one thing I or anybody else might’ve ever anticipated, so simply hear me out, OK? The Wiggles — sure, the kids’s music group — simply carried out a mashup of their catchy smash hit “Fruit Salad” and Tame Impala’s “Elephant,” and I am delighted to report that it is a licensed banger. We could solely be three months into the yr, however I am able to declare this the bop of 2021.
So, what was the trigger for this delightfully surprising efficiency? A mix of unique and newer members of The Wiggles have been invited to look on the Australian radio station Triple J for its “Like a Version” phase on Thursday. I might wish to assume the band’s determination to cowl Tame Impala needed to do with the truth that they’re each Aussie musical teams and subsequently they stan each other. Suited up of their common monochromatic long-sleeved shirts, the entertainers put their very own spin on “Elephant” earlier than seamlessly weaving in a subtly psychedelic model of “Fruit Salad” — full with these signature “yummy yummy” hand motions.
When you’re able to have your world rocked and week exponentially improved, watch their full gig above. And please be part of me in praying that The Wiggles begin providing adults-only live shows within the very close to future, ‘trigger I might personally pay huge bucks to listen to their interpretation of Cardi B’s “Up.”
