Single: TisaKorean – “Bate Onna Bo” (Prod. by TisaKorean)
The Follow-Up to “The Mop,” Hip-Hop’s Latest Dance Craze, “Bate Onna Bo” Is The First Taste of TisaKorean’s Upcoming Party Pack EP
“The Houston artist is taking Texas dance rap to new, and much weirder, heights.” – The FADER
“TisaKorean’s Lunatic Dance Rap Is Made for More Than Just Memes” – SPIN
“With its tinny mix, infectious chant raps, and Fruity Loops-style beats, this Texas dance rap king’s debut has a refreshingly unforced charm.” – Pitchfork
“Tisakorean is in the future. Need proof? Watch one of his Aeropostale and Sperry wearing freestyle rap Instagram videos. In the last year, Tisakorean has become the king of Texas dance rap.” – Pitchfork
A creative force who raps, produces, and choreographs his own dances, TisaKorean brings a unique and boisterous energy to the rap game. Ready to tear the internet up with his latest bass-boosted banger, Tisa shares “Bate Onna Bo,“ a self-produced new single.
Built around a thumping bassline and hypnotic, circus-ready keys, “Bate Onna Bo” is purpose-built for dancefloor success, as Tisa layers wild ad-libs to accompany his lewd witticisms and irresistible hooks: “She like a tambourine, she gon’ make that ass shake/Only thing she good for is some head and a good debate.” But there are more surprises in store, as the beat shifts not once, but twice–first, it mutates into a scratchy crunk-style strip club anthem, and then changes gears for a minimalist trap finale.
The song’s title refers to Tisa’s innate ability to attract women, who flock to him like “bait on a boat.” Highly anticipated by Tisa fans and trend-watchers alike, “Bate Onna Bo” earned some viral notoriety when Tisa leaked a behind-the-scenes video of the song’s mixing process, featuring a very patient engineer and a glimpse of Tisa’s unmatched energy. “Bate Onna Bo” is the first single from Party Pack, the Houston native’s upcoming EP, arriving later this year via Ultra Records.
“Bate Onna Bo” arrives as TisaKorean’s “The Mop” (ft. Kblast & Huncho Da Rockstar) continues its sweeping takeover of TikTok and urban radio. With over 28 million combined views on “The Mop” and its accompanying dance video, the eponymous dance is the first viral rap craze of the 2020s. In recent weeks, the song and dance has inspired multiple TikTok challenges, including the new “or mop the ocean” challenge, which earned over 15 million views in just five days, increasing the total TikTok video creation count for “The Mop” to over 650k. “The Mop” challenge has earned the attention of a growing array of celebrities, including LeBron James, Lil Uzi Vert, James Harden, Jonah Hill, Marshmello, Diplo, Chance The Rapper, Tim Westwood, and dozens of football and basketball athletes. “The Mop” Official Video continues to be in rotation on YO! MTV (18M audience) and Medium Rotation on REVOLT (50M households).
Look for “Bate Onna Bo” to make a similar impact on socials and to help propel the Zack Fox-endorsed young artist and the upcoming Party Pack EP to new heights. Last week, Tisa took to Instagram to give his fans a sneak peak at “Up,” his upcoming collab with Lil Uzi Vert, racking up over 36,000 likes in the first 24 hours.
