I felt like that classic Fry meme after watching this week’s Worst of Music winner’s video. I’m not sure if we’re being trolled or this is a legitimate attempt to make a music video. Normally, it’s pretty obvious if something is a parody or not. In this case, I have no idea what is going on. This week’s WoM winner is by a singer named Gnesa with her first song called Wilder.
Like I said, I have no idea whether this is a legitimate attempt to be a professional singer or a meta joke on the internet where she goes viral because of how terrible of a singer she is. That confusion is only made worse by the fact that the comment section on YouTube contains a shocking amount of praise for Gnesa and the song. Still, I have to give her a little credit for not using any autotune. Too many people use autotune these days.
If you watch this video, you can tell that the lyrics aren’t anything special. However, it’s the completely off-tune vocals that make this song terrible. Unlike, say, Rebecca Black’s Friday, this song lacks a professionally produced music video. This is just Gnesa singing in various outfits in front of a series of backdrops. Mind you, a professional music video wasn’t going to make this song any better.
So congrats, Gnesa. You’ve won the prestigious Worst of Music award for this week. Unless, of course, this is one massive joke being played on the internet. If that’s the case, good work, Gnesa.
