This. Right here. Is my… woah, woah, woah, wait a minute. Not this hit song from 2010 making a spontaneous comeback thanks to TikTok. Most of us millennials remember exactly where we were in our lives when the song dropped (I was in high school), and how the song and video caused a ruckus on YouTube, so we may be rolling our eyes at Gen Z’ers just now making the discovery, but we have to remember that the fifteen-year-olds just now finding this song were the ripe old age of three when it came out, so we have to give them a pass.

Whatever your age may be, it’s good to see “Pretty Boy Swag” back in heavy rotation, so we thought we would take it back to 2010 to do a little throwback on Soulja’s Pretty Boy era, but first, a little background on the current trend and song itself. Everybody. Pay. Attention.

What Is This Trend?

Pretty Boy Swag was released in June 2010, charting at number 6 on the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs (Billboard), and number on the US Hot Rap Songs. The single instantly created a lot of chatter, and was both extremely catchy to us teens at the time, and quite annoying to our parents because of how much we played it over and over again.
