2 Chainz or Jimmy Buffet?

At first glance, you might assume 2 Chainz and Jimmy Buffett are vastly different artists.

Separated at birth?

But there's actually more in common between these bafflingly popular artists than just the fact that their last names are things you should never spend money on at the mall.

And it's not just that they are multi-platinum artists despite possessing little to no skills besides the ability to make extraordinarily silly, mind numbing, undeniably catchy ditties that we all wish we'd never heard yet can't deny singing to ourselves (in moments of extreme privacy).

Below I have listed the names of songs performed by either Jimmy Buffet or 2 Chainz; unfortunately they have not yet collaborated with each other, but after this revelation, the duet is inevitable. See if you can pick which song belongs to which artist. Click on the song to reveal the answer. It's harder than you think!

Ain't He a Genius

So what does this all mean? I don't know. Maybe it speaks to the shared interests of two genres and cultures that are commonly perceived as vastly different. Maybe it means we can understand each other if we just put forth the effort and focus on the things we have in common, rather than the things we don't. Maybe, just maybe, it means that we can all get along. 

Thank you, Tity Boi. Thank you Mr. Buffett. You have brought to this world much more than shitty food, overpriced, watered down, fake Mexican drinks, absurd lyricism, and the combined fashion sense of a five year old; you have brought this world peace, understanding, and the timeless words, "She got a big booty, so I call her Big Booty" along with, "Heaven on Earth with a mustard slice, I'm just a cheeseburger in Paradise", respectively. Kudos, good sirs.

I Love You All...Class Dismissed.
