Over the past few months, users of the Social Media platform TikTok would hear the following opening line from various videos in their feeds, “P***y tight, p***y clean, p***y fresh…“. The song behind that is Dancehall Artist Shenseea’s 2018 single, “Pon Mi“. Produced by Dunw3ll, the single was an instant hit for the “ShenYeng” Artist, and it showed on streaming platforms Youtube, Apple Music, and Spotify. The original song was also loved on Instagram, but when it crossed over to TikTok, it became a different monster.
When “Pon Mi” made its debut on TikTok, the song would be used in dance videos, “fresh out the shower” selfie videos, and was even heavily used in Dog TikToker MisterMainer clips. Over the past few weeks, “Pon Mi” would enjoy a series of remixes that would make Romeich shed tears. Thanks to various Producers (including Ranvision) and DJs, “Pon Mi” was given Classical Music remixes, EDM remixes, 70s Pop remixes, Country Music remixes, K-Pop remixes, Hip Hop remixes, and just about any style you can think of. If we can predict it just a lil bit, the popularity of Shenseea’s “Pon Mi” may reflect exponentially in the streams, making it one of her most popular singles ever. With TikTok becoming the hot platform for Artists to gain major exposure, for old songs to get a new life, and for new hits to be made, we’re curious to see what will happen next.
