All the Brooklyn References in The Viral Song “Brooklyn Girls”

+

The song is called “Brooklyn Girls,” the video is set on the mean streets of Williamsburg, and the singer Catey Shaw sounds like a jazz crooner. The bouncy and undeniably catchy song, which Entertainment Weekly has already dubbed the most hated song on the internet rn,  is peppered with familiar references to anyone who’s ever lived in (North) Brooklyn. In just three minutes and thirty five seconds, Shaw manages to name drop the following Broadway (the one in Brooklyn), the L Train, breaking the rules, girls, Brooklyn-based area codes, Jay Z, combat boots in the summer, brownstones, drinks, sunsets, roughness, grit. Pretty accurate, I’d say.
