Key Takeaways
  • Elon Musk released an EDM song on SoundCloud.
  • The track “Don’t doubt ur vibe” has racked up millions of listens.
  • Musk said he wrote the lyrics and performed them himself.

One of the most fascinating figures of our time, the tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has released an electronic dance single on Soundcloud, hoping to make you move and not “doubt your vibe”.

Musk captures the public’s imagination both with his ability to bring to fruition entirely new technologies and his lifestyle. Rubbing shoulders with other tech titans, even serving on President Trump’s council for a short spell, he’s also been lately dating the Canadian musician Grimes, with whom he’s now expecting a child.

What more can Elon do, other than founding such iconic companies as SpaceX, Tesla Motors, The Boring Company, Neuralink and envisioning hyperloops? Apparently, he would like to make the world dance to his new tune “”Don’t Doubt ur Vibe”.

Will this single lead to a new career direction for the billionaire? The response on SoundCloud has generally been positive, with over 2 million plays and currently 40 thousand likes. Still, chances are Musk won’t invest the time to become the next EDM king, but the song’s message seems to encapsulate well that he is having fun just being himself. “Don’t doubt your vibe, it knows it’s true,” repeats the breathy Elon a line he wrote himself, as he attests in a twitter message:

Interestingly, this is not the first time Musk released a song on his so-called “Emo G Records” on SoundCloud. He previously shared “RIP Harambe” – a tune about Harambe, the gorilla that got killed in Cincinnati Zoo after attacking a child there.
