told yah to stayed tuned and I know you've been refreshing T4L 5 times a day waiting 4 this riiiiiight? (jk, i know most of the visits to this site are me, lol). But actually, this song rocks. It's Catey's response to Katy Perry's "California Girls" and it's just as catchy. Also the song is about BROOKLYN (Brooklyn, so hot right now, Brooklyn.) But srsly, hipsters are the fastest growing demographic for the music industry and to hipsters, Brooklyn is like the sun.  It's the center of hipsters' beanie-infested universe and if you ask a hipster they'll probably even say some douchey, astronomy-sounding thing like "I just felt this natural force pulling me towards Brooklyn". 
Once you turn this song on, it'll be stuck in your head all day erry day, it's THAT good. The doo-woppy repeated chorus line of "Brooklyn Girls" is perfection and the whole song highlights Catey's awesome energy and general positive outlook on life (like actually, give this girl shriveled raisins and she'd still manage to make the best fucking lemonade you've ever tasted). Finally, the bridge kills it, dropping out all the instruments except a jivey guitar and sassy tambourine and showcasing Catey's unique vocals.

Check out the music video here, it was directed by the same guy who did Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop", "Can't Hold Us", and "Same Love" (aaaaaand it's basically gone viral, but not in the best sense. But there's no such thing as bad publicity and also simply FUQ THA H8ERS on the world wide web anyway; the most vocal ones are probably just those jealous theater-lovers-turned-hipsters who got cut from their high school's production of Jesus Christ Superstar! because they can't sing for shit... apurrrrrently their still bitter about it.)
