Internet icon—and online mystery—Poppy has debuted a boppy new song “My Style,” and it’s as eerie, just like her past. Or rather, the lack of history on the YouTuber's rise to fame.
Give it a listen below.
“My Style” features one of the main characters from her online universe, Charlotte The Mannequin—her first official feature on a song, although if you’ve been following her channel, you’d know Charlotte has always been a major part of in Poppy’s universe…
Poppy is known for her bizarre YouTube videos, most under a minute long, featuring a pastel dressed Poppy talking in her sweetly monotone voice that is both eerie and intriguing, making the world wonder: Who really is Poppy?
There are theories that attempt to explain who Poppy is, what she's about and who she's working with (aka Titanic Sinclair). As dated, her YouTube and Twitter profiles were born in 2011, but her character didn't come to life until 2014. She works with Titanic Sinclair—or at least he is credited in all of her YouTube videos. He doesn't have a massive YouTube channel, but his carries the same vibe as Poppy's—plain backgrounds, pastel-based wardrobes and an eerie, stoic way of carrying himself.
There is one video that still lives featuring Poppy in a different form in 2013, but the most we really know is that in the year 2014, the Poppy we know now emerged from YouTube.com. She's seemingly commenting on pop culture in the most beautifully haunting of ways.
Is she a human? Android? Cross breed?
Will we ever know?
