Coronavirus pop: Here are some COVID-19 songs that are trending

During this time of coronavirus where the world is battling with coronavirus infection, the entertainment industry is coming with some peppy and funny tracks to help to leave a pun on the outbreak. The peppy numbers crooned by some renowned and prominent personalities, talk about where disease starts from, about hygiene, the necessity of wearing masks, and emphasize on washing hands. Smashing all the records on the music charts, pop icon Cardi B has a hand — or, rather, a raspy, emphatic voice — in the new anthem which she prepared on the global pandemic.

Peppy tracks on Coronavirus 

1. “Coronavirus (feat. Cardi B)” began its life as a short video, posted on Instagram, in which Cardi B airs her fears of COVID-19 with a typical mix of screwball humor and curse words. The clip ends with Cardi B bursting into a singsong chant: “Coronavirus! Coronavirus! I’m telling you, s— is real! S— is gettin’ real!” The video captivated the internet, and DJ iMarkkeyz, a producer from Brooklyn who specializes in setting memes to music, quickly assembled a remix, placing Cardi B’s exclamations over a skittering trap beat punctuated by the sounds of coughing and panting. The remix and its video went viral after its release with the rapper even reacting to it on Twitter. "At this point I want royalties," Cardi tweeted.

2. Jaime Lever's "Kolaveri di" recreation for COVID-19: Jaime recreated Dhanush's popular "Kolaveri di" number into "Why this corona disease?".

In the song later, Jaime also talks about the theatres and airports being shut. The video currently has 13,285 views on Instagram. She captioned her video: "WHY THIS CORONA DISEASE... CORONA DISEASE Song."
