Surprise: there’s definitely a 90s hip hop album thrown in despite only knowing the one song.
2020 was going to be a personal best year for Sydney accountant Justin Cheng. Meticulous planning to update his travel pics on Tinder, the lowly man had intentions to show his well travelled and cultured persona of him at EDC, holding the Australian flag.
But then the old coronavirus happened.
“With international travel postponed indefinitely, how can I still show people that I am very unique?” he ponders.
Alas, a 30 day album challenge appears on his timeline. Without anyone asking, the opportunist gets to work.
“I’ve been nominated to complete this 30 day album challenge”, he writes as if it’s a chore.
Justin is neither tagged or nominated. Justin bestows it upon himself and proudly lists “DAMN” by Kendrick Lamar as his first choice. The Scorpio is energised by the opportunity to flex his taste in diverse and less mainstream music,.
“This is even better than Spotify Wrapped” he chuckles, which had Nonstop by Drake as his no 1 played song.
Honourable mentions of 90s hip hop albums are thrown in, so it appears he was brought up a ‘lil rough on the edges’’. Impressing only himself “Wu Tang Forever” comes in as his second album, however he really only knows one song.
Not letting you forget he had an extensive travel itinerary planned, he throws in a Martin Garrix album with the subtle caption “was meant to see him at EDC this year 😩”.
3 days in
So far so good. While his Spotify Wrapped was only 24 hours on Justin’s Insta story, friends and colleagues will get to enjoy 27 more days of cool music they’ve never heard before.
“I’ve got some bangers coming”.
30 days later
With a month’s work in the books, the square who definitely had SICKOMODE by Travis Scott on repeat in 2017 now patiently waits to be tagged in the 30 day book challenge.
When asked if Justin has gotten more interesting since the challenge, all his followers on Instagram unanimously answered with ‘no’.
More spice to come
