SAINt JHN is turning lemons into lemonade. The “Roses” singer was set to premiere the video for his single “Sucks To Be You” today (Nov. 16), but the visual uploaded on YouTube was pretty bizarre to say the least.
“They fvcked up the YouTube upload for ‘Sucks To Be You’. It’s not supposed to look like that,” he initially wrote after seeing the visual. Instead of allowing the situation to frustrate him, however, he decided to get some laughs out of it in the form of his newly-lauched meme challenge.
“Since they fvcked up the ‘Sucks To Be You’ upload on YouTube, [and] the screenshots are soooo hilarious, let’s do a meme contest,” SAINt JHN tweeted. “I’ll give 1k for the best meme and I’m picking 5. HUUURRRRYYYY UPPPPP before they take the video down.”
Twitter users eager to win the prize money quickly jumped at the challenge, posting comical memes. “When you tryna sneak food and the pot cover makes noise,” a caption to one of the memes read.
Another user tweeted, “When ur with 2 different groups of friends and ur trying to find a song they both like.”
As fans flooded SAINt’s comments with their memes, he retweeted them, often reacting to them with laughing emojis.
SAINt JHN released the “Sucks To Be You” single late last month. The song is one of 13 tracks on his forthcoming LP While the World Was Burning which drops on Friday, Nov. 20. The star-studded project will feature the likes of 6LACK, Kehlani, J.I.D, Kanye West, Future, DaBaby, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and Lil Uzi Vert.
On the day of the project’s release, the Brooklyn native is slated to perform on the “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
