Weaving together candy-coated harmonies and whimsical instrumentals, the track epitomizes Jagwar Twin's distinctive musical prowess that effortlessly balances nostalgia and fresh innovation. Fans can watch the brand-new lyric video HERE.

With over 40 million views across TikTok and 8 million streams in less than a month, Jagwar Twin's latest electrifying single has taken the digital music scene by storm, achieving remarkable success on TikTok and playlists alike. The track's infectious beats and catchy lyrics have sparked various viral trends on TikTok, where users from around the globe have embraced the song with over 150K user-created videos using the track, securing Jagwar Twin a spot on TikTok's Viral 50 Chart. Simultaneously, "Bad Feeling (Oompa Loompa)" has found its place on influential playlists across streaming platforms, including the coveted covers of not only Spotify’s The New Alt and Limelight, but Amazon Music's DV8. This dual triumph highlights Jagwar Twin's innate ability to connect with diverse audiences and solidifies the track as a dynamic force in the contemporary music landscape.

Coinciding with the release of Paul King's "Wonka", “Bad Feeling (Oompa Loompa)” features an interpolation of “Oompa Loompa", marking a rare approval from the original film's composers. Delving into the world of Willy Wonka, Jagwar Twin brings a new life and twist to the classic "Oompa Loompa" chorus, while also modernizing it. Co-written by Sean Van Vleet (All Time Low, PVRIS) and Ryan Daly (Dove Cameron, John Legend), "Bad Feeling (Oompa Loompa)", exemplifies the magic of modern visionaries reimagining the timeless charm of musical classics.

Previously speaking on the release, Jagwar Twin shares:

"Every one of us holds a golden ticket in our hand, but our ability to receive the keys to the kingdom relies on our ability to trust ourselves and to tell the truth. "Bad Feeling" is a chocolate covered reminder to trust your gut."

"Bad Feeling (Oompa Loompa)" is similar in style to his previous release, “Good Time (1:08)”, which peaked Top 20 at Mexico radio, and stand out track “Happy Face.” With an impressive 425+ million catalog streams and 2.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify, Jagwar Twin stands out as a dynamic force challenging the status quo of the alternative music scene. His genre-defying artistry has captivated audiences through the seamless blend of rhythmic accordion hooks, melodic children’s choirs, and gritty breakbeats, accompanied by profoundly introspective, almost cryptic lyrics.

Jagwar Twin's previous album, 33, channeled the magnetic showmanship of Ziggy Stardust-era David Bowie and Bad-era Michael Jackson, all while unapologetically embracing authenticity and vulnerability. Fueled by chart-toppers like "It's Your Time," "I Like To Party," "Down To You," and "Happy Face," Jagwar Twin serves as a powerful catalyst. His innovative style urges listeners to embrace their true selves, recognize their self-worth, and place trust in their individuality.
