Party People Make Way! Millennium Releases 'Wide Thing'

By Kip Littmann

I thought I had somewhat figured out the group Millennium until they invited fans to take a walk on the ‘wide’ side. Their second single ‘Wide Thing’ off their upcoming album is an interesting hip-hop/rock fusion, mildly reminiscent of The Troggs 1966 chart-topping hit ‘Wild Thing’. Like the 60’s anthem, Millennium is betting heavily (no pun intended) on this hip-hop/rock track to have the same, well, wide appeal. Beyond a doubt, this is a song that people can groove to, even as they ponder the possible meaning of ‘wide thing’, sung over and over again throughout the pulsating, bass-heavy chorus.

The official music video for ‘Wide Thing’ has had mixed reviews leaving some listeners shaking their heads in amusement and some shaking their heads disapprovingly. According to Millennium, it is those who find the video humorous who are closer to understanding the intent of the song. So what is the deeper inspiration behind ‘Wide Thing’? Surprisingly, it’s not the young woman in the yellow leotard with the huge ‘badonkadonk’. Let us flashback to the early 2000’s when urban music dominated the airwaves and popular culture. If hip-hop had come to represent anything during that era it was excess, characterized by an obsession with big things. There were hip-hop songs about big cars, big blunts, big money, big bling, and, of course, big booties. Millennium’s single appears to be something of a throw-back to that fascinating era that captivated the world, in all its glory and ridiculousness. Remember diamond grills or the XXXL pants that fell down to the knees?

With or without any deeper meaning behind the song, Millennium does reveal a willingness to take huge risks with their music and to avoid taking themselves too seriously. By the end of the music video it begins to look a lot like a playbook for living young, and wide and free. Or, in view of Stryker and Sapphire’s rampage through fast food hell, how to make a big ass of one’s self (pun intended). Check out the music video for ‘Wide Thing’ and decide for yourself at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PX0ZxbvVDPA. Please note that the video is rated PG-13 for images of thongs, big butts, wanksters and mild sexual innuendo.
