The second single from Wheeler Walker Jr.’s upcoming rock album, Throne,is here.
In early July, Wheeler announced that he was ready to play his cards in the rock genre. Of course, he is doing it his way, making unapologetically raunchy songs which is exceptionally on-brand for the artist.
With the announcement of the album, he noted:
“I used to be the king of country. Now I’m gonna be the king of rock ‘n’ roll. Dan + Shay used to be my competition.
Now it’s Greta Van Fleet. Same sh*t, different day.“
After releasing the lead single, “Money ‘N’ Bitches,” he follows it up with “Dumptruck.”
And no, it’s not referring to the heavy machinery but rather someone’s backside.
What else would you expect from Wheeler Walker Jr.? Just look at the promo for the single.
The lyrics of the song are all about how Wheeler loves some southern derrière.
“Hell, I seen every p***y from coast to coast But the hoes down south I like the most Big city bitches actin’ so stuck up I need a southern fried momma with a dumptruck.”
With a rocking melody and a catchy chorus, you’ll be chanting “Ah-ooh hooh dump d-dumptruck” by the end of the song.
And the video is right on brand for Wheeler, filled with boot shorts, pit vipers, blue-collar men, and Wheeler singing the lyrics with his signature black button-down, straw hat, and aviator glasses.
With two of the ten tracks now out, I will be very interested to see what lyrics the other tracks hold, sure to drop some jaws.
With a little over a month till the album’s release date on September 15th, we will see if Wheeler takes the Throne of rock music.
