The number-one song on the Billboard Hot 100 is “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber. The number-three song: “I’m the One” is DJ Khaled featuring Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper, and Lil Wayne. It’s increasingly common for hit songs to have multiple artists (especially if Bieber is involved), but the charts haven’t seen anything like “One Voice.” The new hit single from Cash Stack Records has a guest spot from all your favorite rappers, including David S. Pumpkins, excuse me, David S. Pimpkins.
Actually, many. Everyone knows Big Chris, Shantasia, and Yung Bitch — but what about Prinsexxxy, Sno’Cone, Sloppy Moses, Marci Jamz, King Keef, Lil’ Nitwit, 2 Black Guyz, Hawtclown, Pregnasty, Skiffle, Katy Perry, Kathleen Bell, Essentially Simon, and, of course, David S. Pimpkins?
Mikey Day, who co-wrote the original sketch (the vaguely titled “Haunted Elevator”) with Streeter Seidell and Bobby Moynihan, told us he’s “definitely happy” that David S. Pumpkins “became a big deal and it wasn’t necessarily topical or tied to anything. It was just kind of its own thing.” He added, “Originally, he talked a lot more. Originally, there was a lot more dialogue. And originally it was set to like a beat, so it kind of had rhythm. And we were like, ‘Do you haunt?’ And he’s like, ‘Maybe.’ And then there was, ‘If you wake up in the morning and there’s a pumpkin in your hall closet, that means I hate you.’ And it was like, ‘What?’ And he had a little more attitude.”
Now it’s David S. Pimpkins bringing the attitude.
