Dial this hit up on any of these streaming platforms (& many others) and reconsider some of that single-use planet-murdering plastic that we just can’t seem to live without.

PLASTIC!

Plastic is………..unfortunately, one of the most effective inventions….ever.

it keeps its shape, its durable af and it lasts {litter}ally thousands of years (see what i did there).

Here are some unfortunate facts about one of the greatest inventions ever: courtesy of OceanConservancy.org

  1. Use of plastics has surpassed all other man-made materials except steel and cement.
  2. Global production of plastic increased from 2 million tons in 1950 to 380 million tons by 2015, a growth rate 2.5 greater than that of the global economy. Half of that amount was produced in just the last 13 years–IN THE LAST 13 YEARS YOU GUYS.
  3. If this global trend in production continues, humans will have produced 34 billion tons of plastic by 2050, four times more than we have made to date. Close to half—46% of that (a whopping 12 billion tons)—is expected to be discarded in landfills or the natural environment.
  4. As a material, plastic is long lasting as shit, durable as shit, and doesn’t degrade worth shit. This is one of the reasons it’s so useful when it comes to human health and food safety–especially in the developing world. But this also means that plastics accumulate in the natural environment and landfills, leading to what some guy named Geyer and his coauthors call a growing concern of a “near-permanent contamination of the natural environment.
  5. Six different types of plastic (polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polystyrene (PS), polyvinylchloride (PVC), polyethylene terephthalates (PET), and polyurethane (PUR) account for 92% of all the plastics ever made and 42% of that has been used for packaging, generally with a lifespan of less than 1 year before being discarded.
  6. There are only 4 ways to handle plastic at the end of its life: recycled, destroyed or converted to fuel or energy through incineration or pyrolysis, disposed of in managed waste systems OR discarded where it ends up in the natural environment. :/
  7. The highest recycling rates are in Europe (30%) and China (25%) whereas the United States has had a relatively dismal rate of 9% since 2012. ***cue Miley’s banger, “WAKE UP AMERICA” ********
  8. A whopping 79% of all the plastics ever produced have now been discarded. Only 21% of plastics are still in active use.

You guys, if those numbers don’t mean anything to you,

 

So let’s start today because we can’t rewind the clock and work a lil harder to save this fuqqin planet.

Here’s how:

  1. Stream my new single “Plastic” as soon as it drops @ 12:01 am EARTH DAY
  2. recycle
  3. CUT DOWN ON THE SINGLE USE PLASTIC! Bring reusable shopping bags to the store, buy fruit whole and cut it up yourself (no need for those plastic containers), bring your own cup to Starbucks, and PICK UP and properly discard random pieces of trash when you’re out and about!
  4. Keep streaming my new single, “Plastic” out everywhere April 22. Hell, buy the damn thing on iTunes.

Millennials Are Dope As Shit, so suck it.

Anyway, check out my latezt single, MILLENNIALS ARE DOPE AS SHIT.

“The Seahorse Song”

So, when I was in school at ACM, we had a songwriting assignment to write a song with the word “seahorse” in it.

my head immediately went to that part of Miley’s “Pablow the Blowfish” when she sings

“I heard of a seahorse named Sadie

I heard she was quite the Lady

Maybe you’ll find her and you can make babies

That’d be, kinda crazy”

And i knew i needed to tell the backstory of Sadie and those she left behind. My songwriting partner, Santiago Ramones, was kind enough to help me flush out the idea and later the incomparable Ciara Brooke helped me turn it into a song for the masses!

Check it out!!

MONEY MONEY MONEY–(a cover by chase & ciara)

It’s honesty hour for a second::

On any given day I jam out to at least 3 ABBA tunessometimes on repeat.

So of course it’s a no brainer that I’m ecstatic for the sequel to one of the greatest stories ever told, “Mamma Mia”.

(still haven’t seen it tho, lol…i really am not a fan of movie theatres?)

In honor of this, the classic Ciara and I decided to cover one of the Swedish world changer’s most famous hits, “Money, Money, Money”!!

It pretty much sums up the vibe of 2018. So, without further ado, i present: “Money, Money, Monéy.” ENJOY, OK

you won’t believe these wild seahorse factz

So, in honor of THE SEAHORSE SONG (dropping July 31), I thought it would be interesting to take a closer look @ the subject of the diddy, the seahorse.

They are actually some of the most interesting creatures on earth to me and I know you’re dying to know some seahorse trivia so without further ado, I give you 11 wild factz about these serene underwater equines!!

GET THIS:

  • Seahorses hold a Guinness world record for slowest swimmers in the sea. the dwarf seahorse moves 5 ft/hr. been there lol

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdQIykGWpG4&t=1s

  • They have little fins, you guys. OF COURSE SWIMMING IS GOING TO BE DIFFICULT.
  • Like humans, some are monogamous for life and some are just down for breedin’ season

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8M_3uWQYKKY

  • Seahorses engage in an eight-hour courtship dance which includes spinning around, swimming side by side and changing colours.

  • Seahorse bbs are called fries
  • They look exactly like their parents
  • They may be small but their appetites are mighty. they can consume up to 3000 brine shrimp per day largely because they have no teeth and no stomach and food just kind of passes through them like very fast

cigarettes & chocolate milk cover

It’s a little diddy about decadence and desire, a nod to vices and being too blasé to change, so i immediately loved it when i heard it in like 8th grade and have listened to it when it came up on shuffle ever since.

I thought it would be a fun one to cover so I headed up to Ciara’s home studio and we came up with this!

You can indulge on all platforms now!!
