Today, however, we bring you new music from Lil Dicky. In a way Dicky is stepping out of his usual comfort zone of mockery of the world around him. But, he is also stepping up his game of sharing the spotlight on the much-needed topics to be highlighted in the world. That’s what makes him real.
Lil Dicky’s brand new song, titled “Earth,” is a tribute to this gorgeous planet we live in. It is a tribute as well as a wake-up call towards what us humans have done to it, as it now draws towards its death bed. Us humans probably have around another 100 years before all those ‘sci-fi’ movies on post-apocalyptics earths become non-sci-fi.
So, Lil Dicky takes it upon himself to talk about the sad situation the Earth has succumbed to mainly due us humans’ wrong doings. He uses the beauty of the world, all over the world, as one example of how and why this Earth needs to be preserved.
For this good cause, a star-studded vocal cast joins Lil Dicky in the form of different animals who introduce themselves throughout the song. A grand total of 20 singers from all over the world provide vocals on this song; Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Halsey, Zac Brown, Brendon Urie, Hailee Steinfeld, Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg, Kevin Hart, Adam Levine, Shawn Mendes, Charlie Puth, Sia, Miley Cyrus, Lil Jon, Rita Ora, Miguel, Katy Perry, Lil Yachty, Ed Sheeran, Meghan Trainor, Joel Embiid, Tory Lanez, John Legend, Backstreet Boys, Bad Bunny, Psy and Kris Wu.
The animated “Earth” video by Lil Dicky travels us through the plains filled with grass, savannas filled with animals, oceans crawling with life, forests, and even beautiful people from around the world to show us that there still is something to be preserved on this planet. Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat have produced the video.
Support Lil Dicky and this beautiful planet by sharing this video among your friends. Make sure to do your part to save this planet for the generations to come. Being ignorant of the looming threats as obvious as global warming will do no good to anyone. Start small–don’t throw out that plastic wrapper, walk the 1km from your house to the supermarket instead of driving, don’t cut that tree to make way for a garage, re-use that plastic bag and always be compassionate.
