The Top Five Songs Black People Are OK With White People Ruining at Parties

White People! Are you tired of constantly reading Buzzfeed articles calling you out on culturally appropriating black songs at parties? Don’t you want some of your own black songs that you can fail at dancing to? Well, The Kumquat has come up with a playlist of songs black people are more than happy to let you ruin. Play these tunes at any party to let your one black friend know, “Yo! This party’s gonna suck!”


Disclosure: Anything that The Black Eyed Peas did is off the table. I think we can all agree that they collectively belonged to no one.

Hey, remember that one Andre 3000 guy who had the biggest song in 2003? Apparently, you guys still do! Play this at any frat party or bar mitzvah and wait ‘til the “Shake it like a polaroid picture” part to see everyone bump into each other all at once. It’ll be the only rhythmic choreography you do all night!



4. Hot in Herre: Nelly

Celebrate your birthday the 50 Cent way. Play this and watch everyone mumble the lyrics just like 50 Cent mumbles the lyrics, except you didn’t get shot in the mouth and make a movie about it.

This classic song is like white party Viagra. Nothing gets a mixer going like a catchy tune sung by a guy accused of peeing on a little girl! Play this song later in the evening to keep the party bumping. It’ll be the only time black people are mad they got to an event late.

Feeling a little more ethnic? This Latin banger always gets white hips moving like a newborn giraffe learning how to walk. And don’t worry about your dance moves. Just take comfort that you’re jammin’ to a song from a guy who looks like this!
