Big Shaq is a big man with big plans, and now he’s back with his first single of 2018, “Man Don’t Dance.”
The London rapper’s latest track sees him turning down a woman’s advances. “They said one and one is two, that was me and you / But we ain’t stuck like glue (Boom),” he starts off. “I like my eggs with a yolk (Scrambled) / Please don’t burn my toast / She wants me to be her bloke, but she can’t cook Sunday roast.” The track also comes with his signature adlibs, making for another viral hit since his comedic debut, “Man’s Not Hot.”
The track may have been inspired by a comedy skit Mr. Big Shot recorded a few months back. Set in front of the Hollywood sign in California, Shaq reflects on a time a woman named Sheneneh approached him to dance during All-Star Weekend. Not surprisingly, his response was nothing short of hilarious. Be sure to catch it below.
Since the release of “Man’s Not Hot,” Big Shaq has been relatively mum on the music scene, opting for a U.K. remix at the top of the year and a couple campaign ads. In recent months the comedian has starred in advertisements for both FIFA and Nike alongside fellow hometown rap acts such as Skepta and Giggs. Now that Big Shaq is back in the studio and set to perform at several festivals this summer, expect to hear more music from him in the near future.
