Baby Tate Will Make You Put on Dungarees: The artist formerly known as Yung Baby Tate has dropped the Yung but retained the Baby, so the youthful energy is still there without doubling down. Or something.
She has a new single out called “Dungarees,” which is taken from the soundtrack to the movie Bruised. That’s an all-female soundtrack for the Netflix film, also featuring H.E.R., Saweetie, Dreamdoll and more.
The song, with its pulsing 808s, opens like an air raid siren. It’s an alarming, engaging intro, and the song kicks on from there. The Georgia artist raps: “Don’t you ever, ever come for me, ‘cuz you way, way down under me, b**ch put on some dungarees, and like a kangaroo do a jump for me.”
That’s hilarious, and intense. Baby Tate is going to humiliate anyone who attacks her.
Back in April 2019, Tate told us that, “I started writing and performing in third grade. I always knew it could be a career based off of watching my mom.” She was right.
