By now, we’ve all seen new red-bearded country singer Oliver Anthony make the rounds as right-wing country music fans flock to him, but did you know there’s an upcoming gay country singer set to debut soon?
Whether it’s mostly parody or not, Dixon Dallas has made the rounds as the internet’s newest country singer for his raunchy, somewhat sweet lyrics about gay sex.
Standing in front of a mic with light-washed jeans, a simple white undershirt and topped off with a cowboy hat, Dixon Dallas sings, “He’s bouncing off my booty cheeks/ I love the way he rides/ I can hardly breathe when he’s pumping deep inside/ I kiss him on his neck and then he kisses on bussy...”
The bit has gone viral on TikTok with the sound getting over 40k posts on the app. But with the sound bit blowing up, people have been wondering whether this clip is from any real song and who Dixon Dallas really is.
The South-Alabama raised rapper, singer and songwriter Jake Hill is mostly known for his rap and hiphop music and has a fairly decent following. You can find much of his music, including his gay, horse-riding cowboy persona Dixon Dallas, on Spotify where he’s also recently released Dallas’ new song, F150.
Several people on the internet accused Jake Hill of “queerbaiting” – a term which has largely been misused from its days spent in its media criticism days. The songwriter has not disclosed his sexuality, "Of course you'll have people saying I'm gaybating and queerbating. Growing up in the south, you're taught how to think a certain way. I reached a point where I started thinking for myself. My music is a big f*** you to my past. No, I haven't disclosed my sexuality. I could be gay. I could be straight. I could be bi. At the end of the day, I feel like it doesn't matter. There's no law that says I can't write a song about getting my booty cheeks bounced off of."
Considering the wild misuse of the word queerbaiting, the launching of investigative crusades to discover someone’s sexuality, and the problems of forcing people to come out to prove their sexual identity, you’d think people would learn by now.
