Following their viral, genre-melting single “Kismet,” hyperpop-punk duo XIX are back to set fire to speakers with “Bratz Doll,” a sparkling tune with an equally brilliant animated music video by The Real Cornelius. XIX (Yung Skayda and Karm the Tool) said of the track:
“We wrote this song about feeling confident in your own skin, no matter how hard someone tries to bring your self-esteem down. For us, this exact message has really helped us embrace our own femininity, which is why we referenced the ‘Bratz Dolls.’ We want people of all types to listen to this song and feel good about themselves and who they are.”
Putting their musical influences together to form an alchemic cocktail of punk, rap, pop and more, XIX is redefining music as we know it with every release. “Kismet” has seen 8.7 million streams, more than 3 million TikTok videos created and over a dozen sounds supported by the likes of social media maven Charli D’Amelio, super producer Marshmello and renowned comedian Sacha Baron Cohen as Borat while promoting the new Borat 2 movie.
