SINGLE REVIEW: bbno$ – Piccolo 

bbno$ has had many viral hits, but that’s not his only identity. The Canadian-Armenian rapper, singer and songwriter has cultivated this global fanbase who have immediately connected to his satirical approach to music and real life. Everything comes from a real place, but he’s just putting his unique spin to it and having you smile and laugh along the way. He’s also a killer live performer and he will be showing that to Australian audiences when he heads down under for Listen Out in September and October.   

Ahead of his forthcoming seventh studio album ‘Bag Or Die’, he has dropped yet another killer track ready for viral status. ‘Piccolo’ follows fresh off the pursuit of ‘Mathematics’, and spotlights the fiery trajectory he is currently on. Named after a character from Dragon Ball Z, there is a line in the chorus that brings the reference full circle with; “She like ’em fancy nuts, so I guess I’m pistachio. Dragon Ball Z dick, blow me like I’m Piccolo”, which becomes yet another classic bbno$ line. He always has quotable moments in his songs and this song does not lack them. Actually, let’s look at the three best lyrical moments on the song other than the Piccolo reference; 

1. “I ain’t playing, only ride first class on the airplane. Cause I own “”, that’s my domain”.

2. “Got a freaky lil’ honey on my lap, lap, lap. Do a flippy on her booty, it go clap, clap, clap. I’m doing nothing, making money, make it stack, stack, stack. You gon’ pull up to my show, you gon’ clap, clap, clap”.

3. “Ballerina stretching out my cock, yeah she got no tutu”.

Bringing it all together with a guitar led riff, he adds a pop interpolated hip-hop beat that is going to have you bouncing in the club, in your bedroom, at work, in the car, on the train… do I need to keep going?
