Late last year, Mount Vernon’s The Real Simba dropped “Bounce” a fun, high energy single perfectly suited for a viral TikTok dance challenge – and your next socially distanced gathering.
Since making the switch from pre-law to music, the young artist out of Mount Vernon, NY is known for his fast-paced flows and high-energy singles… and “Bounce” definitely fits the bill. The fun party track features an aggressive, bass-heavy production that grabs your attention from the jump, and is punctuated by Simba’s raw and unapologetic flow. The rapid-fire verses are broken up by a super catchy, instructive chorus telling listeners, TikTokers, and his lovely female music video companion exactly what to do with their hands… and letting them know exactly what they can do if they don’t like it. Fans seem to be getting the message as Simba-inspired dances backed by “Bounce” make their way around Instagram and TikTok.
