A hilarious take on the snacking during lockdown by gospel singer KD French, from Atlanta, Georgia, is cracking up people all over the country.
The Fridge Again
She shared a video of herself singing the lead and background vocals of the song about the magnetic pull of the fridge which is so relatable. “Somebody stop me, I’m at the fridge,” she sings while the background vocals echo, “She’s at the fridge again!”
“I think it’s time for my snack now but it’s only been two minutes since the last visit,” she continues in her powerhouse gospel style. “What about the chicken? Mashed potatoes? Collared greens? Or some fruit? Or a melon? Ice cream? How ‘bout a pickle? Popsicle? Or a slice of cheese?”
9.5 million views and counting
No wonder the song got more than 9.5 million views across Facebook and YouTube. “Gurl, you need to stop looking in my window!” one person commented on her video. “This is the official COVID19 lockdown weight gain anthem,” another fan wrote. “Pose” star Billy Porter also shared the video on his Instagram page. “Don’t act like y’all can’t relate…..” he wrote in the caption. “Who’s been to the fridge again?”
Watch: Gospel Singer Performs Hilarious Song About Quarantine
French is a gospel singer who shares her songs on social media, singing her own nine-part lead and background vocals to religious songs like “I Shall Wear a Crown” and “Show Me the Way,” but this looks like her first lockdown related song. French says she finds herself at the fridge in search of snacks almost all the time.
“One day I was sitting in the house and it was like boredom set in,” she said, “I got tired of watching Netflix and … I was probably at the fridge more than I was watching the TV.”
She says she likes making people smile, and was happy that people all over the world were smiling because of her song, “All of us are going through something. And we can see it every day on the news, one thing over here and another thing over there,” she said. “And I’m just grateful to be in the category of laughter. Laughter heals, it helps.”
“At least making this song kept me from the fridge for about an hour!!” she joked in the caption. “Jumping jacks, sit ups, and running are in my future!! I can see it… but not today!!!”
