One of Lifetime’s Dance Mom‘s superstars, JoJo Siwa, has just released her new single “Boomerang.”
We got to see some of JoJo’s amazing dance moves on the show and now we get to hear her awesome rapping and singing skills. The song is more than just a fun tune to dance to but also includes an important message that can inspire everyone, especially those on the internet. So, what is this 12-year-old singing about? Online bullying.
Online bullying is not a new trend not only on social media but all over the web.
She spoke with Billboard about her new song and said:
“I never really had experienced hate in school with girls and boys. What I do experience is social media and so every day people comment, ‘You’re fat, you’re ugly, you’re rude, you’re all this stuff, and I just don’t like it at all. I don’t want anyone to have to go through that.”
The title of the song says a lot just on its own. Boomerangs are known for being thrown but always end up coming back. I think this could really for two different types of interpretations. The first for the person who is being bullied and the person who is bullying. While the song are meant to shine light on online bullying as a whole, JoJo’s lyrics focus on the person who is being bullied. Her lyrics reflect this idea where she sings “Ima come back like a boomerang.”
However, when looking at the song title, it could also be meant for the person who is bullying in terms of karma. Karma can simply be explained that what goes around, comes around – just as a boomerang.
JoJo shows her talent in the new single while taking a strong stance on a big issue at the same time.
“Boomerang” was officially releases on iTunes on Friday, May 6 so be sure to get your copy today and take a listen!
