About

Material Gworl is the colloquial name given to the 2020 song "Material Girl" by rapper Saucy Santana, due to the way Saucy Santana pronounces the word "girl" in the song. In late 2021 and early 2022, a bass-boosted remix of the song became a prevalent sound on TikTok where users paired it with sketches that either brag about themselves or make self-deprecating jokes.

Origin

On January 15th, 2020, American rapper Saucy Santana released his song "Material Girl." The official music video of the song, uploaded to Saucy Santana's YouTube channel the day of its release, gained over 4 million views in two years (shown below).

The bass-boosted remix went on to become far more prevalent on TikTok as users paired the sound with sketches where they either brag about themselves or make self-deprecating jokes.
