They continue to impress everyone with their vocals and harmonizations, and that continues today. Sweden’s Eurovision 2020 representative The Mamas has released their version of “Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini”, which was originally released by Brian Hyland in 1960. The trio’s version of the song was produced by Benjamin Mjönes alongside Joy Deb (who has worked with numerous Eurovision participants in the past).
A modern take on a classic tale
Upon the release of their version of the song, The Mamas went on to explain the important message of the song, and adapt it to the modern world:
“Even though it’s a song with playful lyrics wrapped in a fun summery beat, it comes with an important message about the journey from body shaming to body positivity; a modern take on a classic tale of the perfect beauty standards and impossible societal norms that affect our confidence, image and self-worth, and how to break away from them. From “in the locker, she wanted to stay”, to “showing her curves, honey she came to SLAY!””The Mamas on the release of their version of “Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini”
In addition to the release of the track, it was also revealed that The Mamas will start the #ItsyBitsyDance challenge on Tik-Tok, so make sure you are following The Mamas, by clicking right here. It’s been revealed that they will indeed be wearing yellow polka dot bikinis!
