About

Chug Jug With You is a 2018 Fortnite themed parody song of Estelle's 2008 song "American Boy."[1] The parody is originally by YouTuber CM SKITS. A remix inspired by the parody by YouTuber Leviathan went viral as an original sound on TikTok in early 2021.

Origin

On September 16th, 2018, CM SKITS uploaded a video to YouTube[7] titled, "Let鈥檚 play Fortnite!!!!" (shown below). In the video, a shirtless person dances over various Fortnite screenshots to a poorly sung parody of Estelle and Kanye West's 2008 song, "American Boy" featuring the lyrics: "Take me to your Xbox to play Fortnite today. You can take me to Moisty Mire, but not Loot Lake. I really love to chug jug with you, we can be pro Fortnite gamers." The video gained over 79,000 views in roughly 2 years.



The video was reposted a number of times to YouTube, gaining hundreds of thousands of additional views.[8][9] The video was also shared on Instagram by private meme page le_meme_jesus, an account with over 200,000 followers.[10]

Leviathan Parody / Remix

On November 10th, 2018, Leviathan uploaded a parody of Estelle and Kanye West's "American Boy," inspired by CM SKITS' video, to SoundCloud,[3] titled, "Chug Jug With You." The track gained over 350,000 plays and 1,400 likes in 2 years. On December 18th, Leviathan uploaded the song to YouTube[2] (shown below) garnering over 1.8 million views in a comparable span of time.

The song contains the same lyrics as CM Skits' earlier parody but adds additional lyrics around them to make a full song.



We got a number one Victory Royale
Yeah, Fortnite, we 'bout get down (get down!)
Ten kills on the board right now
Just wiped out Tomato Town
My friend just got downed
I revived him now we鈥檙e heading southbound
Now we鈥檙e in the Pleasant Park streets,
Look at the map, go to the marked sheet
Take me to your Xbox to play Fortnite today
You can take me to Moisty Mire but not Loot Lake
I really love to Chug Jug with you
We could be pro Fortnite gamers!

Listeners found the song comedic for its Fortnite-themed lyrics, the catchy beat, and the fact that the song is clearly sung by a young boy. Many commenters make note of the song as being surprisingly good and shower it in positive praise both ironic and not (examples shown below). Shortly after it was uploaded, 10 seconds of the video (from 00:08 to 00:18) were claimed by UMG, leaving a small gap in the YouTube upload.
