"Broodje Bakpao" is a song recorded by Dutch rapper Big2, from the hip hop duo The Opposites, featuring rappers Gers and Sef. The song is based on the popular Dutch sketch show New Kids. The single was released on 4 December 2009 through TopNotch.[1] It was produced by Big2, and co-written by Twan van Steenhoven, Yousef Gnaoui, Gerwin Pardoel and Steffen Haars.[2] The single became a success in The Netherlands and Belgium.

Background[edit]

The single is based on the Dutch comedy sketch show New Kids, a popular television series in The Netherlands, with the programme's popularity being the main reason behind the success of "Broodje Bakpao". The song, like the television series, was mainly popular among teenagers. The song is about eating baozis. A baozi is called a broodje bapao in Dutch. The characters in the show wrongly pronounce baozis broodjes bakpao instead of broodjes bapao. That's why the song is called "Broodje Bakpao".

Chart performance[edit]

"Broodje Bakpao" became a success in The Netherlands and Flanders. In The Netherlands, the song reached number 1 in the Mega Single Top 100, where it stayed at the top for two weeks. It reached number 2 in the Dutch Top 40 and remained there for three weeks.[2][3] In Flanders, the song reached the third position in the Ultratop 50.[2]

Music video[edit]

In the music video, the characters of New Kids are eating baozis. As of December 2015, the video on YouTube was watched over 3.4 million times.[4] The cover art of the single is a screenshot of the music video.
