Becky G Teams Up With Fifth Harmony For Tinder-Referencing, Anti-Smoking Anthem “Left Swipe Dat”
If cancer and a multitude of other health concerns aren’t reason enough to quit smoking, perhaps getting less action on Tinder might be. That’s the moral of “Left Swipe Dat” — an all-star Public Service Announcement starring teen rapper Becky G, girl band du jour Fifth Harmony and a bunch of YouTube stars you may or may not know. It’s cute, funny and might just be effective if you’re really addicted to dating apps.
“This must be some kind of joke if you think you’re my type,” Becky G begins the (actually kind of catchy) anthem. “If you’re gone in a cloud of smoke, I just left swipe.” That’s when 5H come in for some killer vocals and choreography before the “Shower” diva returns for an amazing verse that includes the line: “I like the six pack abs, not the six packs a day!” The video occasionally comes across as a Saturday Night Live sketch but that’s actually part of its appeal. Watch up top and put that cigarette out.
