The long wait is over! It’s been more than seven months since Honey Boo Boo and sister Pumpkin went into the studio with Adam Barta to record the song “Movin’ Up!” and now we finally have the music video.
Without further Honey Boo ado…
Here’s a sample of the lyrics:
I’m just a small town girl
living in my princess world
When rainy days give me the blues
I break out my dancing shoes
Started out as a pageant queen
then on TV doin’ my thing
Now I’m movin’ up in the world
new house [??] with my girls
Later, the song turns into a repeat of the chorus: “Honey Boo Boo bop, do the Honey Boo Boo bop…” as Honey Boo Boo dances with Mama June, sister Pumpkin, Adam Barta, and dad Sugar Bear. Manager Gina Rodriguez from GR Media joins the Honey Boo Boo Live Crew for this group photo in the studio:
As far as the song goes, I don’t think Katy Perry or Taylor Swift have too much to worry about.
“Movin Up!” will be available to download on October 1 on iTunes.
On a side note, the release delay looks to be because of TLC’s threats to sue the Honey Boo Boo family if they released the song (or starred in a television show on another network) before their contract was up. At the time, it was reported that the family would be free and clear at the end of May, so it’s unclear why the song was put on the shelf until October.
