WATCH: JACOB SARTORIUS’ ‘HIT OR MISS’ MV IS A MASSIVE HIT OR MISS
Everyone’s favourite 12 year old has released another song, Hit or Miss.
Jacob Sartorius’ rise to fame came through thanks to his abundance of musical.ly videos and his first release, Sweatshirt. The new track, Hit or Miss, feels like the modern day My Moment, Rebecca Black’s 'more serious', relatively better follow up her brain-numbing Friday.
Like Sweatshirt, Hit or Miss still has Sartorius trying to get in with a girl and how his experiences in life are some sort of woes.
The boy is literally 13.
The beat is pretty simple and easy to bop along to, but Sartorius' monotone isn't doing anything to help make this song anything close to being hype.
It’s worth to note that one of the lines in this song are “What are you thinking? I think I need some Blues Clues” and I feel like that line is a marker to show how young this guy is. It’s also my favourite line in the entire song.
I have to give a mention to “These other girls fake, I see through them like Casper” because I love how in his world, he can tell there are fake 13 year old girls and that he can tell that they’re fake.
The video, on the other hand, is super generic and lacks any clear plot, which is alright. But it just didn’t make sense. I feel like there was a reason as to why so many girls were so stunned with Jacob Sartorius’ presence.
But what it was?
I don’t know.
The most exciting part of the video is when Jacob’s holding Jiff the Pomeranian, to be honest. But the fluffy dog does little to make this awkward track anything worth syncing onto your iPhone.
Props to Jacob Sartorius though, for getting past all the trolls and staying confident in his slightly cringeworthy selfies.
You do you, Jacob.
