In the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, Chanel West Coast revealed her new “Corona Rap” via Instagram on Wednesday, April 15. “I felt the need to spread awareness to say in,” the 31-year-old exclusively tells In Touch about her inspiration behind the song.
“I think we are all ready to get back out and that will only happen if everyone follows the rules already!” she adds. The brunette beauty dropped the mic as she performed her new track in a video for her followers. “Chilling here at home dodging ‘Rona. Social-distancing got me feeling like a loner,” she rapped, adding, “Scared of even walking to the corner. Sick of people not taking orders. Sit down, stay your ass at home, wash your hands lock the doors. Sanitize, clean the floors.”
Aside from using her musical gift and platform to send her powerful message, the Ridiculousness star has been using her time in social isolation to improve her productivity. “During quarantine, I’ve been trying to stay as busy as possible because I am not usually one to sit still easily. Staying on the go keeps me sane,” the “Black Roses” singer admits to In Touch.
“I almost finished setting up a little home studio during this time, made a little home gym area in my garage, painted some walls in my house, wrote some songs, experimented with makeup tutorials and workout vids on my YouTube and I got really into meditation, too,” she says, listing some of her quarantine activities. “Trying to use this time at home wisely, let’s put it that way.”
It’s no surprise the artist has found motivation during this time of distress. Chanel previously told In Touch she thrives under pressure, especially from her haters. “I dedicate my perseverance and ambition to my haters, honestly, because as much as I love my fans and I dedicate so much to them as well it’s really the hate that makes you go, ‘I’m going to prove you wrong,’” she said. “And that pushes me every day to be like, ‘What am I going to do today to make these haters and in a year look back and feel stupid wishing they never left that comment?’”
