“I prolly shouldn’t write this,” serves as the opening line for Mat Kearney’s new single “I Don’t Really Care.” In his new song, he makes his humorous yet existential disdain for social media influencing crystal clear. He half pokes fun and half hates on social media culture.
The second verse holds the most potent lyrical trash talk for an un-named influencer. “Man, why you write a sonnet just tryin’ to get a comment? You aint nobody’s prophet. Just tryin’ to make a profit.” Although his song takes hard shots at social media culture, he doesn’t critique it aimlessly.
His answer to social media addiction is, “Can we just watch the sunset and forget how we compare? I wish that I could say that I don’t really care.”
