Flula Borg, fresh off his Streamy Award win, has a message for his followers: As the title of his new album attests, he wants to get physical. Flula, a YouTube star known for his funky fresh musical creations, has released his first EP, titled I Want To Touch You.
I Want To Touch You contains five tracks, all filled with the sort of percussive beats and ridiculous lyrics that make Flula’s videos so entertaining. On his YouTube channel, he has spent the past few months sharing music videos that accompany some of the songs on his new album. In “Dinosaur DJ,” for example, Flula dresses up in a saurian costume and spits out dope raps. “Booty GPS,” on the other hand, features a guest appearance from fellow YouTube star Mamrie Hart. The biggest production, however, is the title track, which features singer Ava Pearl and actress Milana Vayntraub.
Flula, who is also known for his overly literal interpretations of American idioms, offered a comment on his new album, in his own singular way. “I am hoping that this Album shall touch the Brains and Hearts and Kidneys of Humans and Not Humans as well,” he said. “To speak of Not Humans, many of the Tones in the Album are so very high that only a few Poodle Species, and also Mariah Carey, can hear these.”
We hope Mariah Carey listens to Flula’s new album so she can comment on the musical easter egg he apparently left for her. Mariah (and everyone else) can pick up I Want To Touch You for $4.95 on iTunes.
