Lowkey, Avenue Beat are saying exactly what everyone is thinking: f— 2020. The trio went viral on TikTok with their tongue-in-cheek response to the year’s events, prodding them to release a full version of the impactful track.

Released Friday (7/10), the trio expands on the song that highlights raised anxiety, social distancing, loss of pets, injustices, masculine toxicity and much more.

This is getting kind of ridiculous at this point / Yo my cat died and a global pandemic took over my life / And I put out some music that nobody liked / So I got really sad and bored at the same time,” they sing early in the song.

The track continues with a new lines as the trio sings in unison, “Okay, that was a lot, the problems I got are / Honestly probably not that bad when I compare them to some sh– y’all have / But I’m just stating the facts this year is just whack / Emotionally I am lonely and anxious and mad / And if you feel me on that… Lowkey f— 2020.”
