Austin Mahone taps omnipresent rapper Pitbill for latin-flavored single “Mmm Yeah”, so his decision to hit the disco in the song’s retro-tastic lyric video is slightly confusing. But really, who cares when you get to see the 17-year-old give Saturday Night Fever realness in a giant blond afro and flares?
“Mmm Yeah” is the third taste of Austin’s much-anticipated debut LP Junior Year after RedOne produced dance-pop anthem “What About Love” and (failed) hip-hop excursion “Banga Banga”. The song has performed well thus far — climbing all the way to number two on iTunes and debuting at number 60 on the Billboard Hot 100. Watch up top.
