Caroline- Amine


If you have been keeping up with the latest music releases, then you have probably heard the song “Caroline”, by Amine. “Caroline” was released on March 9, 2016, and immediately went viral. Today the song is still pretty popular and is continuing to gain popularity.

What is this hit song about anyway? Well, the song in itself is pretty hype and gets you going. The lyrics are well known by a lot of fans, but I don’t think its understanding is. “Caroline” is about various women that Amine has met in his life and have invested time with. Yes, that is what this whole song is about. While that may be true, did anyone catch in Amine’s political stance at the end of the song? We know he isn’t a Trump supporter that’s for sure.  I’m not saying that it’s bad thing nor am I saying it is a good thing.

Amine performs the song on the Jimmy Fallon show, but in quite a different way. At the end of the song, Amine talks about historical events in America and how he is not ashamed of being a black man. He mentions Trump and at the end of the song says:

       “You could never make America great again
all you ever did was make this country hate again.”
 – Amine

I can’t make this up. How did he get from talking about the girls he has met to talking about Trump, I don’t know. At the end of the song, Amine just gradually includes his opinion about the recent election and it fits in as if the whole song was about is political views. I guess you really won’t catch or pay that much attention to the song until you take the time to break it apart. Now that focus is on Amine’s political statement, will that change how people react to  his performance of “Caroline?”
