With the world moving faster by the minute, there are just some things we don't have time for.
New Yorker MarieLine doesn't have time for a lot of things, including "10,000 commercial breaks [that] fuck with my brain," she declares on her gritty and provocative new single "I Don't Have Time for This S#!T." In the song, she reflects on countless other things that get under her skin, such as tourists, "a baby on her lap with a diaper full of crap" and pharmacy trips. For the street video--which premieres exclusively today--she turns to the streets to get the answers from very real people. Whining kids, traffic, drama and Donald Trump seem to be the general consensus; the clip scatters throughout the cityscape, flicking between photos and raw footage.
"As I progress in life, I realize that I really don't have time for the annoying everyday tasks that we all have to take care of... I wanted to see what everyone else thought of this so I took to the streets of NYC to find out what other people don't have TIME for," she shares with Popdust. "The response was great. I'm so glad to see that I share this truth with most people, that as we grow older (and wiser!?) we just don't have the time for frivolities. Watch the video we created for the hit track 'I Don't Have Time For This S#!t' and tell us what YOU don't have time for...holiday shopping perhaps?"
Originally from France, MarieLine circled the world to Italy and the UK before making the bold move to the states. She's the daughter of a Swedish model and French tennis player (turned entrepreneur), but her creativity surged in her blood. She began writing down her emotions into lyrics and melodies as a teenager, before moving to London to initially pursue an acting career. As luck would have it, she stumbled onto a role supplying beat-driven vocals for a creator in Paris, but then she found her way to New York City (after a pitstop in LA).
The "I Don't Have Time for This S#!T" street video follows the official, colorful clip which dropped earlier this year.

Is Black Out Tuesday really "an urgent step of action to provoke accountability and change"?
On Friday, May 29th, as protests ripped across the nation, a message began to circulate through social media, asking that the music industry disconnect from the Internet for a day.
The post called this "an urgent step of action to provoke accountability and change."
This is part of an initiative created by Atlantic Records' Jamila Thomas and Platoon's Brianna Agyemang, who launched it alongside several calls to action. "Tuesday, June 2nd is meant to intentionally disrupt the work week," they wrote. "The music industry is a multi-billion dollar industry. An industry that has profited predominantly from Black art. Our mission is to hold the industry at large, including major corporations + their partners who benefit from the efforts, struggles and successes of Black people accountable. … This is not just a 24-hour initiative. We are and will be in this fight for the long haul. A plan of action will be announced."
Some Hollywood elite took to the streets to protest in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Major cities across America have been host to a number of protests following the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who was murdered by former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.
Hundreds of protesters were arrested over the weekend, as disturbing videos of police officers brutalizing civilians began to surface. Nevertheless, thousands and thousands of demonstrators stuck it out in support of the Black Lives Matter movement—and even in protective gear, a few familiar faces were among the crowds.
