In 2020 the Ghanaian-American singers Amaarae and Moliy released the original “Sad Girlz Luv Money.” The song found viral success on Tik Tok, where users commonly featured the following lyrics in their videos:

“I really like to party /

I really like your body /

I really wanna get naughty /

I think you’re such a hottie.”

The music video builds a world that is incredibly Y2K, but very modern at the same time. At some points I feel like I am watching MTV on my grandma’s old TV, but other points feel like I am endlessly scrolling through TikTok.

In 2021, as the afropop dance track gained popularity, a Kali Uchis remix was released. This remix was another push that kept “Sad Girlz Luv Money” in the spotlight.

In the beginning of 2022, DJ Vigro Deep was added to the “Sad Girlz Luv Money” remix roster. The 19-year-old South African DJ based out of West Pretoria is the son of Victor Ngcongwana, also known as DJ Spring. 

The second generation musician’s goal is to bring amapiano to a worldwide audience. Amapiano is a type of slow but dramatic dance music that has grown in South Africa in the past decade.

It seems like America has been his first stop, with the rising popularity of his remix.

If getting Americans hooked on amapiano is Virgo Deep’s goal, I think it has been met. I know I can’t resist dancing to the awesome drum beats in this remix.
