    Lil Dicky

    Known for his tongue-in-cheek tunes and celebrity mates, comedy rapper Lil Dicky has combined both for a good cause, Earth Day, and created the collaboration to end all collaborations, featuring nearly 30 A-list musicians in a charity song called Earth.

    Think Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Halsey, Wiz Khalifa, John Legend, Miguel, Rita Ora, Katy Perry, Lil Yachty, Sia, Snoop Dogg, Brendon Urie and many many more, all voicing animals in the song's CGI video. The song itself was produced by blockbuster producers Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat, so when you add those two up there's well over 30 mega-stars featured on this song. 

    It's basically 2019's We Are The World. 

    Ariana (a zebra) and Justin (a baboon) have the spotlight on the song, while others get funny one-liners to share why it's so important to conserve our earth for future generations.

    It even features bloody Leonardo DiCaprio, whose charity Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation will be receiving a portion of the proceeds to fund organisations supporting and helping transition communities to 100% renewable energy and fight climate change. 

    Lil Dicky says about the song, "Like a lot of people, I had a vague idea that something bad was happening here on Earth, but I didn't really realise how insane our climate crisis is and how screwed humanity is about to be.

    "It's full-on crazy! If we don't get our act together now, and change a lot about our fundamental behaviour, Earth will become unlivable alarmingly soon. Why did it take me so long to get wind of this? I feel like everybody on the planet should be talking about this 24/7. But that's not the case. So I wanted to make the most entertaining and epic piece of content possible, to get everyone aware and talking. Because it's now or never... Let's save the Earth! We love the Earth!!!!"
