Ecco “Earth”, la canzone ecologista

maggio 11, 2019 By

Un inno con protagonisti diverse popstar per sensibilizzare e raccogliere fondi. Un’iniziativa che richiama quella di We are the World di trentaquattro anni fa. Solo che, questa, volta, il tema non è la fame nel mondo, ma l’ambiente e la sua tutela. Parliamo di Earth, il recentissimo singolo del rapper e comico statunitense Lil Dicky, scelto per celebrare la Giornata della Terra. A cantarla, con lui, star della musica pop come Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, PSY, Backstreet Boys, Halsey, Miley Cyrus, Ed Sheeran, Wiz Khalifa, Shawn Mendes, Charlie Puth, Katy Perry, SIA, Meghan Trainor, John Legend e altri ancora. Presente anche Leonardo Di Caprio: i soldi ricavati dal brano andranno proprio alle associazioni partner della Leonardo Di Caprio Foundation, impegnate per trovare soluzioni ai cambiamenti climatici.

Il videoclip inizia con immagini di incendi boschivi che colpiscono Los Angeles e dintorni. Poi, l’attenzione si sposta su Lil Dicky: il cantante incontra un gruppo di ragazzini che rovescia in strada un cestino dei rifiuti e chiede loro di raccoglierli. Il gruppetto rifiuta e ne segue un battbecco. Uno dei ragazzini, però, raccoglie invito e rifiuti. E nel farlo, trova un libro magico. È l’inizio di un racconto musicato con protagonista Lil Dick in versione “primitivo”. Ad accompagnarlo in questo viaggio nella Terra ecco un babbuino (voce Justin Bibier), una zebra (Ariana Grande) un koala (Ed Sheeran), un avvoltoio (Adam Levine), un canguro (Sia), una piantina di marijuana (Snoop Dog) e altri animali. Leonardo Di Caprio arriva alla fine. È sempre sulla prua del Titanic, ma stavolta invece di Kate Winslet abbraccia un globo in miniatura.

A seguire, video e testo. Buon viaggio nella Terra!

Earth

What up, world? It’s your boy, just one of the guys down here. Well, I could be more specific. Uh, I’m a human, and I just wanted to, for the sake of all of us earthlings out there, just wanted to say:

We love the Earth, it is our planet

We love the Earth, it is our home

We love the Earth, it is our planet

We love the Earth, it is our home

[Justin Bieber]

Hi, I’m a baboon

I’m like a man, just less advanced and my anus is huge

[Ariana Grande]

Hey, I’m a zebra

No one knows what I do, but I look pretty cool

Am I white or black?

[Halsey]

I’m a lion cub, and I’m always getting licked (Meow!)

[Lil Dicky]

I’m a man (Hello?)

Can you hear me? (Anyone out there? Hello?)

I’ve trudged the Earth for so damn long

And still don’t know shit (What’s going on?)

I hope it’s not a simulation (Huh)

Give each other names like Ahmed and Pedro

And, yeah, we like to wear clothes, girls still look beautiful

And it covers up our human dick (Woo), eat a lot of tuna fish

But these days, it’s like we don’t know how to act

All these shootings, pollution, we under attack on ourselves

Like, let’s all just chill (Hey), respect what we built (Hey)

Like look at the internet! It’s cracking as hell

Fellas, don’t you love the cum when you have sex? (Ayy)

[Lil Dicky]

You know what, Bieber? We might die

(We love you, we love you)

I’m not going to lie to you

I mean, there’s so many people out here who don’t believe Global Warming’s a real thing. You know? We gotta save this planet. We’re being stupid

[Ariana Grande]

Unless we get our shit together now
