A new song with an environmental message is topping the charts this Earth Day! Lil Dicky’s “Earth” features artists from all your favorite talent shows. American Idol‘s Katy Perry, The Voice‘s Adam Levine, John Legend, and Miley Cyrus, and The Four‘s Meghan Trainor are all on the track.
Listen to “Earth” and watch its brilliantly animated music video here:
Since its release on Friday, “Earth” has consistently been in the Top 5 on the iTunes charts, currently at #5. Lil Dicky is a Jewish rapper and comedian known for his sometimes pointed and always humorous rap songs. But this level of star power is unlike anything he’s ever done before! The video shows off some beautiful landscapes and some pretty entertaining characters.
We have Adam Levine playing a pack of vultures, Miley Cyrus as an elephant “with junk in my trunk,” Katy Perry as a pony that Lil Dicky rides on, Meghan Trainor singing for India (yes, the country) and John Legend as part of the “We Love the Earth” choir with Psy, Bad Bunny, and Kris Wu.
Honestly, the video is a trip. And even just listing out those roles was hard not to laugh at. But it’s very visually appealing! And the message of taking care of the planet is timely for Earth Day. Lil Dicky encourages listeners to “take global warming seriously.”
In addition to all the talent show favorites, huge stars like Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Sia, and Brendon Urie are also featured. And those are just some of the biggest names! As it mentions in the video, all proceeds from the song will be donated to the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation. Leo was also part of this song, playing (of course) himself.
