If ATC and the Vengaboys are Your Thing, You'll Love Betta Lemme's "Play"

If ATC and the Vengaboys are Your Thing, You'll Love Betta Lemme's "Play"

Betta Lemme’s “Play” is the vibrant, cutesy bop that we seriously need right now. Music & Mojitos recently viewed the music video, which first premiered on PAPER. The groovy video features comedic YouTuber Emilia Fart, and the results truly speak for themselves. Lemme’s “Play” is ultimately what an ideal song should look like: upbeat, energetic, and just downright mesmerizing. Lemme makes you long for the good ol’ days of trashy Euro Pop bliss. For real.

Music & Mojitos weren’t the only ones who happily bounced up and down for acts like ATC and the Vengaboys in the 90s. “Boom Boom Boom Boom!!” was a certified dance anthem, and if you say otherwise—you’re dead wrong, buster. Don’t bother arguing because your words are no good here. Lemme captures an undeniably over-the-top (yet absolutely lovable) era in exactly three minutes and thirty-six seconds. Chow down on your favorite slice of pepperoni pizza like Emilia Fart (hey, we didn’t name her, people), and check out Lemme’s “Play” for yourselves. Get ready to fall head over heels for a bold, colorful artist to keep your eyes on this year.

It’s no coincidence why “Play” is so darn catchy. Co-writers Jesse Saint John and Danny L Harle were on hand to help craft the unforgettable song. Both men wrote for some of the biggest megastars in the music industry. Britney Spears, Charli XCX, and Carly Rae Jepsen are just some of the names that previously used the duo’s services. Talk about an insane “who’s who” list in the pop world.

There’s no doubt that Lemme is in good company with names like Britney and Charli. Don’t be fooled, though. This isn’t Lemme’s first time at the dance. The “Play” singer co-wrote and lent vocals on Sofi Tukker's outrageous hit, "Awoo." After getting a taste of success, Lemme is all systems go for a major spotlight of her own.

Lemme is dropping serious heat like its going out of style. With the releases of “Kick The Door” and “Give It,” she’s not messing around. We recommend getting on the Betta Lemme train before it promptly leaves the station. Don’t play yourself and hit the play button already.

Sorry. We couldn’t help ourselves.

If you enjoyed Betta Lemme’s “Play,” Music & Mojitos thinks you’ll dig Dyson’s vocals in the music video for “Mood.”
