More entertainers are paying attention to the Bitcoin buzz as it soars in popularity. The most recent is from multiple Grammy Awards winner, Pharrell Williams.
Yesterday, Pharrell Williams tweeted to his over 10 million followers that he planned to play an unpublished Bitcoin song honouring Satoshi Nakamoto. According to his article, the song was published in 2011, just two years after the asset was created, when it reached $1 for the first time. The song included Diplo, a famous DJ, songwriter, and producer, according to Pharrell Williams.
“I know this is a crazy question but back in 2011 I did a song with Diplo called Bitcoin, can somebody find Satoshi Nakamoto, I’m trying to play it for him,” William’s tweeted.
His inquiry attracted responses from the crypto community, with MicroStrategy’s Michael Saylor urging the singer to make the song available to the public because “we are all Satoshi.” Snoop Dogg, a rapper who has made a reputation for himself in the NFT community, has also backed Pharrell in his quest. Diplo used an emoji of the well-known Italian hand motion “Che Vuoi,” which can be translated as “disbelief.”
It’s doubtful that a song about Bitcoin would be recorded in 2011 when the asset was still on the outskirts, but Bitcoiners are already eager to hear what it may sound like. Nonetheless, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have already made an indelible mark on popular culture, with the asset honourably addressed in Eminem’s Not Alike.
‘Member everybody used to bite Nickel, now everybody’s doing Bitcoin. – Eminem’s Not Alike.
DJ Khaled’s song with Nas, Jay Z, and James Fauntleroy also highlighted Bitcoin, with Nas declaring, “Winner in life, f- a coin toss.” I’m a coin-based cryptocurrency scarface.”
