You've seen Blaire White write for The Post Millennial. But now you can see her dancing and singing alongside Tom MacDonald in his newest song "Snowflakes."
The music video embedded here below is at number four in YouTube's trending for music. Over 3.5 million views in the last three days alone. What's so special about this song? Why is it appealing to the public right now in the current year 2021?
As of today, "Snowflakes" by Tom MacDonald is at the top of the iTunes charts for all genres. It'll make better sense why once you hear the lyrics.
Here's a preview, in part:
“You know who hates America the most? Americans”
“Trigger warnings used to be on TV for seizures”
“And now they're everywhere to protect millennials' feelings”
“He, she, his, him, hers, them, they”
“Screw a pronoun, 'cause everyone's a retard these days”
“I hear 'em preaching at a protest that hatred's the problem”
“But hating straight men, white folks, and Christians is common”
“Coca Cola telling people they should be less white”
“They preaching tolerance but if you disagree, they fight”
“There's a race war here, elections based on fear”
“Black lives only matter once every four years”
For many readers and frequent consumers of news, this song is the closest modern take to Billy Joel's iconic "We Didn't Start the Fire. '
Both songs list off world events that influence what's making our public political paradigm go tick, tick, tick like a time bomb waiting to explode. Inked Magazine had the pleasure of interviewing MacDonald earlier this year. The outlet took a peek inside the rapper's head. He started out in the scene at age 18 and was coming out of rehab for alcoholism at the start of the Trump administration.
It was with this open mind MacDonald had a chance to more clearly see the world. That meant stepping into the polarizing world of modern American politics.
MacDonald told Inked: "I think that people like to say, 'Oh, he's being edgy for the sake of being edgy' because they don’t want to admit that these conversations are being had in households across America and the world. Anything I'm talking about privately with my friends or my family, I'm putting into songs." So either the success of "Snowflakes" means that MacDonald caught up with what the public wanted in a hit song, or we the people caught up to MacDonald's way of thinking.
