Is it a real song and who sings it?

I was doing lunch with Microsoft x

I am being stalked, hounded and pestered by a TikTok sound – but for once, I truly don’t mind. And that’s because it’s that much of a banging bop that all I want to do is listen to it. On repeat. At all times. This time, the sound that has set up a permanent residence both in my mind on my For You Page is the “Beat that boy with a bat: SMACK / Damn, sorry I blew you off, I was doing lunch with Microsoft” banger that is absolutely inescapable. The song slaps, the dance trend pops off – but who actually sings it? Is it a real song? Can I listen to it on Spotify for all my waking hours? So many questions – and here are the answers on if the “damn sorry I blew you off” TikTok sound is a real song and what artist actually sings it.

It’s a mashup of Nasty and SexyBack

Thought that infectious beat sounded familiar? You have a wise ear – because the TikTok sound uses the instrumental from Justin Timberlake’s classic banger SexyBack and mashes it up with verses from a lesser known song. The lyrics are taken from Nasty by Ayesha Erotica – an underground, Y2K pop star who worked closely with Slayyter when she was having her break through but has now retired mostly from the public eye and has become quite an elusive figure.

The full iconic lyrics in the viral section on TikTok are as follows:

‘Cause I beat that boy with a bat, smack

Damn, sorry I blew you off
I was doing lunch with Microsoft
I’m sucking off a CEO
If he’s not a millionaire, then I’ve got to go

Is it on Spotify?

Alas, no – the “damn sorry I blew you off” TikTok sound that mashes up Nasty by Ayesha Erotica and SexyBack by Justin Timberlake is not on Spotify, but Ayesha Erotica’s original version is. And, of course, so is JT’s. So you could just listen to them back to back and try and simulate the experience – if you were so inclined.

Why’s it viral on TikTok?

Dance trend, of course. When using the sound, people generally walk to the camera and smack it on the “Beat that boy with a bat” lyric and then usually cut to them in a different outfit or in a full face of makeup, and then do some choreo. Here are some of the best TikTok examples below:
