ritt momney - Put Your Records On

[Verse 1]
Three little birds sat on my window
And they told me I don't need to worry
Summer came like cinnamon, so sweet
Little girls double-dutch on the concrete

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Maybe sometimes we got it wrong, but it's all right
The more things seem to change, the more they stay the same
Don't you hesitate

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favorite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams
Just go ahead, let your hair down

You're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow

[Verse 2]
Blue as the sky, sunburnt and lonely
Sipping tea in the bar by the roadside (Just relax, just relax)
Don't you let those other boys fool you
Gotta love that afro hairdo

“Put Your Records On” is Ritt Momney’s first release following his July 2019 album "Her and All of My Friends". The track is a cover of Corinne Bailey Rae’s 2006 hit, “Put Your Records On,” taken from her debut, self-titled album. The song gained traction after becoming associated with a viral TikTok trend and even ranked at #6 on the Rolling Stones‘ Trending 25 chart in September. During a follow-up interview with Rolling Stone, Momney described the moment he realized his cover was taking flight: "The song was doing pretty well, but it wasn’t doing nearly as well as it was before the TikTok trend began. It started to get playlisting, and I was super stoked about that. And then, it really was an almost overnight shift. It happened fast, and within a day or two, I was getting on all these Zoom calls with labels. It was intense. It seemed like I was just chilling and then, all of a sudden, a hundred people run into my house like, ‘Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go!'" "Right after COVID-19 hit, I wanted to be working on something, but I really felt that – with how depressing the world already was at that point – I couldn’t handle writing a depressing song. It was too much. I started playing around with the idea of manifesting happiness instead of projecting my own sadness. It was pretty therapeutic. […] I really didn’t change much about the song besides modernizing it a bit. The song is what’s doing the heavy lifting. I’ve felt some guilt for getting all of this stuff off of somebody else’s song, because it opened up so many doors for me." – via Rolling Stone During the week ending March 13, 2021, “Put Your Records On” peaked at #30 on the Hot 100.
