Fans react to ‘Fresh Outta London’
The track has certainly gained some mixed feedback.
But despite the song gaining incredible feedback, the music video has had some serious backlash.
Just last week, Jake Paul was slammed for having a huge party in his Calabasas mansion whilst large gatherings were forbidden due to high coronavirus rates in LA. And it turns out that at the same time as having this wild house party, he was actually filming scenes for his new music video.
Fellow YouTuber Keemstar said: “New Jake Paul song isn’t bad but isn’t good. And he most likely spread coronavirus to make this music video. So that’s a dislike from me bro.”
Whilst another Twitter user said “let the Mayor take away the views of your Fresh Outta London Music Video,” referencing the Mayor of Calabasas who spoke out after this illegal party.
So overall, there’s some very mixed reviews on the new Jake Paul track. What do you think?
