Mama June has been teasing that the family has some big projects in the works, with one of them being a reported new reality show. Late Monday night she revealed another project — a music video! Titled
“Honey Boo Boo Bop” “Movin’ Up,” the song will feature Honey Boo Boo (of course), her sister Pumpkin and musician Adam Barta. (The preview clip is included below and set to autoplay, so that’s what you’re hearing.)
From Mama June on Facebook:
JUST WANTED TO SHARE ONE OF THE EXCITING THINGS THAT WAS RELEASED TODAY WE HAVE A SONG/MUSIC VIDEO COMING OUT WITH PUMPKIN AND ALANA AND A AWESOME GUY ADAM WE HAD A BLAST RECORDING IT AND WAS COMMENTED ALANA DONE GREAT FOR HER FIRST EVER ON A STUDIO I’M VERY PROUD OF HER AND PUMPKIN AND WE DONT HAVE RELEASE DATE YET BUT WILL LET Y’ALL KNOW IT’S A GREAT IT’S A GREAT CATCHY SONG WE WANT TO THINK OUR TRUE FANS WE APPRECIATE OUR SUPPORT AND ALWAYS LOVING US THERE IS MORE EXCITING THINGS TO COME #MOVINONUP #HONEYBOOBOOBOP
Inside Edition will be featuring some behind-the-scenes footage of the recording of the song and music video on Tuesday’s episode and released this teaser clip in which you can see Honey Boo Boo showing off her vocal abilities and her dancing skills:
There is no release date yet on the music video or the single.
UPDATE – The single will be released October 1, 2015, but the music video was released a few days early. Click the link to watch!
Meanwhile, I’m going to go out on a limb and speculate that the reported reality show that the family is working on is titled “Movin’ On Up” because Mama June is using the hashtag #MovinOnUp with her new posts. The show will reportedly have a Beverly Hillbillies theme (but judging from the hashtag, I’m thinking now more of a Jeffersons vibe? LOL! Mama June as Weezy?) and I assume will feature the family living in their new, much nicer home in Hampton, Georgia. So why not The Honey Boo Booverly Hillbillies?
UPDATE – Scratch that previous paragraph. GR Media responded to our post on Twitter and revealed the name of the song is “Movin’ Up” and not “Honey Boo Boo Bop.” We have since updated the title of this post.

Here are some more updates from Mama June from over the past week, during which time they recorded the segment mentioned above for Inside Edition as well as an episode of The Doctors (in which they reportedly address Honey Boo Boo’s weight issues and put her on a diet) and Entertainment Tonight. (Their new PR firm, GR Media, knows how to get some media attention!)
