Jax’s TikTok Song ‘Victoria’s Secret’ Gets Spins on Z100 in New York
A viral TikTok song calling Victoria’s Secret by Jax is now playing on a Hot 100 station in New York.
The song “Victoria’s Secret” was recorded in early summer after a personal experience. Jax shares with Variety that she wrote the song after listening to a girl she keeps struggling with body image issues after buying a bathing suit. The TikTok video has amassed over 40 million views with its catchy and explanatory lyrics.
“I know Victoria’s Secret and my daughter, you wouldn’t believe it,” Jax sings. “He’s an old man living in Ohio / Making money off girls like me. Taking advantage of bodily troubles / Selling skin and bones with big boobs. I know Victoria’s secret / She was made up by a guy.
The guy referenced in the song is Les Wexner, the billionaire founder of Victoria’s Secret. Jax says the intent of the song was never to hit a single mark, but to put the objectification of the body on the breath.
“I just need to write songs about my truth and tell my story. The point of the song is that he realized he was being called by a culture of women standing up for themselves. So he liquidated all the money and ghosted and went off the grid. Now we’re all sitting here with body issues and he’s got billions of dollars. That doesn’t sit well with me,” the TikTok star Told Variety about the song.
“Victoria’s Secret” reached No. 2 on the Spotify US Viral 50 charts and aired on New York’s Z100. The song also reached #1 on Tampa’s iHeartRadio countdown show of top songs on 93.3 FLZ. Jax says the support has been overwhelming and something she’s thrilled to hear about on TikTok and elsewhere.
“It was cathartic for me to hear other people share their stories,” she said. Variety. “So I really didn’t feel alone anymore in this case.”
