Bubblegum Boy is a song by Pia Mia and Bella Thorne and it's released as a promotional single.

Kenton-Duty-Tweets-Bubblegum-Boy

Releasing and reception

It was first performed in Ohio, where Bella Thorne and Pia Mia announced their new single and danced to it. Although it was planned to premiere it on October 18th, 2011 on iTunes, it wasn't released on this date due to "technical difficulties". The release was postponed until December 5th of the same year.

After postponing the release date, it had a lot of bad criticism due to complaints about the waiting. A lot of versions (not in high quality) were leaked, and after it was released, it got a good review. It is referred to as a "catchy way to insult a boy without saying bad words", although some people criticized it because it has a bit of auto-tune and sometimes you can't understand who is singing.

The girls also did a 1:20 minute long video about the behind the scenes with a preview.

Meaning

This song is about a boy who is talking about himself. He makes a lot of promises that are not the truth. The two girls are talking seriously, we can see it in different parts of the lyrics such as "This ain't recess, so I ain't playing", meaning this isn't recess so be serious with them, "I hear you talking but you're really not saying nothing, calm that down!" or "I hear [that] you talk real slick, can you back it up?".

They also use informal English in parts of the song, such as using "you's (you is)" instead of "you are", or "ain't" instead of "isn't" or "am not" and "hunnid' instead of "hundred".

Music video

Although at first, Bella Thorne and Pia Mia planned to do a music video together for this song, due to a "frenemy" comportation, there won't be a music video.

There's a lyric video of the song, which was uploaded in the Bella's and Pia Mia's official YouTube account.

This should be played at high volume!
