After bursting onto the scene last year and selling out countless shows, Hobo Johnson has started his latest era. After his Bonnaroo debut and release of “Typical Story” back in June, Hobo Johnson has released “Uglykid” featuring Elohim. The song discusses hating yourself and not wanting to exist while giving another person the entire world. Elohim opens the song with her beautiful vocals, giving the song a full sound, while Johnson raps between her hymns.
The music video for “Uglykid” gives a neon, beautiful vision of beauty and ugliness, showing bright colors and flowers alongside trash cans and dentist visits. The “Typical Story” singer also shows his “undying love” for another “person” (in the form a purple-haired mannequin). The video shows him having dinner with her, rubbing her feet and spending a night in together.
