How soon is too soon?
My ears perked up at a line in this song when came on the radio this morning
I gave you bass
This is the All About That Bass girl. I was just talking about that girl a month ago! She has one hit and is already self referencing!
I don’t know what to think about this. Maybe she just doesn’t have a ton of ideas, but more likely this is intentional. From a brand new singer that’s either guts or some amazing hubris. Either way I admire it.
I don’t know have any particular thoughts on artists that self-reference. Sometimes it’s a fun way of rewarding your audience for paying attention. Like when the Beatles did it, it was cute. I suppose it could be sometimes just lazy recycling of old ideas. Then again, you don’t have to self-reference to do that
