A Scots singer has gone viral after launching a song slamming Boris Johnson and the uncertainty surrounding Brexit.
Scottish musician Callum Beattie’s ‘The Boris Brexit Song’ mocking the bumbling Tory and our upcoming exit from the European Union has won fans across the counry.
The Edinburgh man sings his concerns about Johnson and his plans for the country in front of friends whilst strumming a guitar.
He said: “To be honest, it’s quite tongue in cheek but I did do some research and watched plenty of interviews of him and just wanted to raise my concerns.
“I want to provoke people into thinking so they’re not taking it lying down.
“I didn’t expect it to go viral to be honest, but then it’s sitting there with hundreds of thousands of views. I just thought it’d be good for my fanbase.”
And Callum’s fanbase and profile is growing, after a young lad sang his song ‘We Are Stars’ on The Voice Kids recently and his current single ‘Without You’ is gaining some traction on national radio.
On top of that, he’s preparing to roll out his tune in front of the masses at Hyde Park on Sunday when he supports Robbie Williams.
Is he about to have his own mini-Stormzy moment, then?
He added: “You can’t be scared of offending people, everyone is going to get offended by something.
“But everyone is entitled to an opinion and having a voice and I reckon even if people don’t necessarily agree with it, they might find the song quite funny.”
Certainly, lots of social media users certainly do!
Joan Kevan said: “Brilliant should be top of the charts, made my day!”
Rob Melvin wrote: “This is awesome!”
Cameron Roxburgh suggested: “Get this tae number one!”
And all of Callum’s sterling work was done with a glass of the national soft drink on hand, as some eagle-eyed fans spotted.
And the singer gleefully confirmed: “Aye, it was mine. It’s my favourite drink!”
