During the Covid lockdown, one of the songs that were most danced to was Something New, the sensational ballad by Wiz Khalifa featuring Ty Dolla $ign.
And Phiona Nyamutoro, the National Female Youth Member of Parliament (MP), was among Ugandans that jumped on the TikTok trend to groove to the jam.
It’s even the only TikTok video that the account under her name has ever posted. In the video, she is seen enjoying the tune with two lads.
The song, whose video was directed by filmmaker Bryan Barber, has garnered over 143 million views since it was posted in August 2017.
It has interesting lyrics.
Its chorus goes: “Baby, come give me something new (Ooh-oh); Baby, come give me something new (Ooh-oh); ‘Cause I can’t stop loving you (Ooh yeah); Since I got a taste of your love (Ooh yeah); Baby, come give me something new (Ooh-woah); (Ooh-woah).”
One of the verses goes: “God damn, you know who I am; Try to be on the low, but you ain’t slow; Keep my shirt open, eyes low; Get a lot of paper, I know; But you ain’t, into that; You like real facts; Like if you show love, you gon’ get it back; Like if you f*ck good, you gon’ get it back; Like if you cook, wanna a real nigga that; Gon’ rap ’til that p*ssy like, uh uh; We can go and get a private room; We can f*ck for one night, ain’t gotta jump the broom; Say your nigga, chill.”
Nyamutoro, who was the vice guild president of Makerere University (2015 – 2016), was elected MP in 2021.
