JoJo switches up 'Leave (Get Out)' lyrics to encourage fans to stay in during coronavirus outbreak
The singer dropped a video of her singing new social distancing-friendly lyrics to her 2004 hit song.
JoJo has a simple message for us all in this time of social distancing and it sure isn't "Get out, leave!"
On Wednesday, the singer posted a video via the TikTok app of her singing her 2004 hit single "Leave (Get out)," only she switched up the lyrics to make them more quarantine-applicable. The new version changes the title to "Chill (Stay in)," as JoJo sings about staying home, learning to cook, and practicing good hygiene in the age of self-isolation.
"I never thought corona could be such a nasty bitch but now that she’s here, boy all I want is for you to use common sense," she sings to the familiar "Leave (Get Out)" tune. "Stay in, right now, do it for humanity/I’m deadass about that, but we will survive/ So you gon’ learn how to cook now and practice good hygiene/ I know you’re bored and want to f— around but not on me. / Tell me why you’re acting so confused when the CDC laid it out for you. /Come on I know you’re not dumb, to go behind my back and hit the bar, show’s how immature you really are./ Keep exposure to a minimum."
And that might not be all we get of JoJo's coronavirus remix. The singer also posted on Twitter that a full version of the song was on the way. "Just doing my part, y'all," she wrote.
JoJo's current single "Man" is out now, with album good to know arriving May 1. Watch the video above.
