Up and coming artist Lyn Lapid releases her official music video for her latest single, “Itsy Bitsy”.
On making the video and working with her tarantula co-star Elenore, Lyn says, “Working with Elenore was very interesting. On set, I said I wasn’t afraid of tarantulas or spiders, but every time Elenore got within 10 inches of me, I’d freak out on the inside. She was placed on a table that I sat at, and she would not move until ‘Itsy Bitsy’ played, I think it was because of the vibrations from the bass line. We had to stop mid-song a bunch of times because Elenore got to the edge of the table and almost fell on me, and my heart raced every time. I remember panickily staring down the animal specialist for help. Although I didn’t say anything because I knew it’d look so dope for the shot. I’m pretty sure I got over my fear of spiders and tarantulas by the end of the day.”
Last year, the then 17-year-old singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist shared a snippet of the track on TikTok, which caught fire online. The full version, a spin the classic children’s nursery rhyme “Itsy Bitsy Spider,” illustrates Lyn’s rapid progression as a songwriter and artist.
Lyn Lapid has affirmed herself as a star on the rise for 2021. Her debut single, “Producer Man,” emerged as “the most-viewed unreleased demo on a TikTok video in 2020.” The song morphed from a viral TikTok clip into a phenomenon, as the original demo eclipsed over 70 million views and 8 million likes on the app. To date, the official release—produced by Dan Nigro [Olivia Rodrigo – “drivers license,” Conan Gray, Carly Rae Jepsen, Lewis Capaldi, Sky Ferreira, Empress Of]—has racked up 31 million global streams and 4 million YouTube views on the music video. Attracting widespread tastemaker praise, Rolling Stone claimed, “The fully produced version evokes early Nineties coffee-house soul gussied up with modern drum programming and ghostly electronic harmonies,” while Idolator rightfully predicted it “is certain to make big waves.”
