When Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain wrote a song as a joke, 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' became one of the band's biggest hits. When TikToker Megan Boni made a satirical song about wanting a six-foot-five man in finance with a trust fund and blue eyes, she accidentally made the song of the summer. Soon, influencers across all platforms were lipsyncing to Megan's simple lyrics. Some even added beats, so the simple four-line verse was developed into a full-fledged song. Here is how an aspiring comedian made a hit song.

How Megan Boni Made The Song Of The Summer

It all began when Megan Boni, a 26-year-old New York-based TikToker, made a four-verse song to make fun of people who she believed had unrealistic expectations from dating and relationships. "I was trying to make fun of the girls that say they are not high maintenance...but then they have a long-ass list of needs," she told Today.com. 

"I'm looking for a man, I'm looking for a man, I'm looking for a, looking for a, looking for a man in finance, trust fund, 6'5, blue eyes." sings Megan, adopting the affectation of the women that she is satirising. She also wrote under the video, "Can someone make this into an actual song plz, just for funzies."  

And then the song became a global hit with 14 million likes. Fans made the song their own, adding their flair and even changing the lyrics. Several professional DJs like DJ Malibu Barbie and DJ Hunny Bee made their versions of the song, each of which accumulated huge amounts of traction. Then Grammy-winning musician Finneas made his own version of the song, singing for "wifi network, friend's house, airport, hotel". 

Several DJs and musicians have requested Megan for exclusive rights to the song, all of which seemed surreal to Megan. She admitted in interviews that she didn't realise how catchy the song was when she first made it. Now, it is stuck in the heads of millions across the world and doesn't seem to be going anywhere.  

Megan is hopeful that she can spin the song into more interesting iterations. For once, spreading good art doesn't seem difficult, all thanks to social media.
