PPAP Singer Releases New Fruity Song

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

Remember the 2016 hit song pen-pineapple-apple-pen that ruled the Internet and also created a world record? Well, it’s just a few days into the New Year, and Pikotaro is back with a new smashing fruity hit! Yes, moving beyond apple and pineapple, it’s time for some tangy orange!

Pikotaro is a famous comedian in his native Japan

On the 7th of January Pikotaro realised a brand new fruity single ‘I like orange juice’! The Japanese comedian behind the viral hit “PPAP” thrilled the global audience with his catchy 45 second song which broke the internet in September last year-with an outstanding 67 million views on YouTube.

His simple English lyrics and dancing to a simple catchy beat, similar to this earlier performance, seem to have been liked by people again. The song is little over one minute and has already reached an amazing amount of people on YouTube and has got over 5 million views!

The ‘Apple Pen, Pineapple Pen’ was hands-down the best random song we have listened to since Gangnam Style. And after ‘PPAP’ became the first Japanese song to get into the US Billboard top 100 singles in 26 years and won a Guinness World Records as the shortest song to make the top 100, another song was well expected!

If you have not seen the new (soon to be viral) video, check it out below.

    Really interesting article Ava! With the release of this new song, I’m not sure wether it will blow up like ‘PPAP’ however it could be another huge song that could possibly climb into the US Billboard Top 100 again! Personally, I don’t particularly like the songs that Pikotara produces but I can see why they have so many views as they are extremely catchy. I also don’t think that ‘I like orange juice’ is as catchy as ‘PPAP’ but I can totally see why it has already got 5 million views as I think Pikotara has really made a name for himself as a pretty funny guy in the music industry.

    Great article. I really think this wont be as popular as ppap as it has 110 million views but pikotari has really trying to entertain people and is also serious about their buisness. But more the less i hope they continue to grow and expand their channel. 🖊🍍🍎🖊
