6 Sexy and I Know It - Lmfao

This song was big and all over the radio but when you really listen to the lyrics it's just weird, awkward, and strangely catchy.

I remember when I was a preschooler and this came out, back in 2011! It made me vomit!

I like catchy and a bit "brainless" songs but this one is awful and just annoying - Magnolia
