If you've been on the internet in the past week, you've likely seen "Poland" by Lil Yachty. "Took the wock to Poland" is all over the place. Like many, you might be curious as to why this phrase is trending to begin with. Well, it starts with Lil Yachty, and from there, it only gets more and more interesting. Produced by F1LTHY of Working on Dying, this vibrato-donning hit is one for the books.
"Poland" by Lil Yachty: Why The Internet Is Obsessed with This New Song
Lil Yachty is a golden child of the Soundcloud era, so it's no surprise that he's only continued to remain on the cutting edge of the music scene. "Poland" is a perfect indication of Yachty: where he's been, where he's at now (yes, Poland), and where he's going. Sonically, it's up to par with some of his best, and its uniqueness makes it a song that will be remembered for ages.
As soon as the song emerged, it began spreading like wildfire across the internet. Lyric videos, memes, and so much more began to demonstrate just how much Yachty's fanbase was pleased by this particular drop. What looks to be an unofficial music video (likely made by fans) is already at 5 million views on YouTube in less than a week.
Above all else, you know the internet has taken a song to an extreme when there are 10-hour loops of the music on YouTube, especially when the song is yet to officially drop on DSPs yet. Don't believe us? Take a look at this video, and then look at the date of release for "Poland" on Lil Yachty's Spotify.
If a 10-hour loop can get 50,000 views in the 5 days before a song is released, that's a pretty tell-tale sign of a viral hit. That's not even counting just how much of a buzz the song has gotten on other platforms like Instagram and TikTok. Here's a look at "Poland" by Lil Yachty, which officially dropped today.
