It’s been awhile since Antoine Dodson serenaded us with his amazing words, “Hide your kids; hide your wife; and hide your husband.” But the time has come—Dodson is now working on his own album, 2012 AD, and this week his first single is going viral.
According to Nick Carbone of TIME, the song is a collaboration between Dodson and Athens, Alabama-based musician Brent Morgan. Apparently, Morgan attempted to release the track twice before, once in 2010 and once in 2011, without Dodson, but the video didn’t catch on.
Bringing Dodson in on the track and launching it on the YouTube sensation’s personal YouTube channel seems to have been just what Morgan needed to catapult his song to viral success. The video already has over 160,000 views in a matter of days and is likely to see a whole lot more action. And as Brent Morgan is still featured on the track (though he was the main singer on the original and he’s demoted himself to backup), maybe it will help give his own career a boost as well.
Check out the video below and let us know what you think. Are you surprised that the single seems to utilize almost as much auto-tune as the Bed Intruder Song?
