Island Boys thought ‘I’m An Island Boy’ was ‘trash’ before it went viral on TikTok

Rap duo The Island Boys went viral last year for their controversial track of the same name – but while it’s made them famous, they didn’t initially think the song was up to date.

The Island Boys took over the headlines left and right at the end of 2021. Her song “I’m An Island Boy” went viral on TikTok and then YouTube, with people across the web belting out the tune’s catchy lyrics.

Of course, the rappers drew quite a bit of criticism as a result — most notably from rap legend Snoop Dogg and comedian Kevin Hart, who dubbed the couple “two fools in a pool.”

They’ve also had a few issues with high-level influencers along the way, including Logan Paul and TikTok star Bryce Hall (who’s still trying to negotiate a 2v1 fight with the duo).

Well, the Island Boys are a household name… but they weren’t expecting to blow up over a song that left many on the internet scratching their heads.

The pair opened up about their sudden musical success during an episode of Steve-O’s Wild Ride! podcast on April 7, where they admitted they actually found the song to be “garbage” at first.

The Island Boys are a rap duo who recently rose to international prominence with their song of the same name.

Island Boys admit they mistook viral song for ‘trash’

“Okay, we didn’t think it would explode like that,” one of the rappers said. “We published five freestyles on TikTok. We thought the Spanish song would explode, but the Island Boy did. I thought it was rubbish at first.”

“I laughed at that!” the other revealed.

“He said to me, ‘Bro, just listen to me. Just go for the Island Boy thing, huh?’” he continued. “And I think I’ll laugh at him. I’ll respect him, he’s my twin brother and we work together, right?”

“Swear to God he said it was going to go viral. And it went viral.”

Despite their initial reservations about the song, it’s certainly made them very popular.

For now, it looks like the rappers will remain focused on their musical careers as fight negotiations for their possible first-ever boxing match continue to stall.
