Friday is known for new music releases and unexpected drops by major artists. One though, is very unexpected as Elon Musk has released his very first track. It’s EDM. And it’s all about self-belief.
Don’t Doubt ur Vibe
Elon Musk, the incredibly busy CEO of Tesla and SpaceX is now a music artist? You heard right. On Friday the famous philanthropist dropped a tracked called ‘Don’t Doubt ur Vibe’ onto SoundCloud and it’s actually pretty chilled. EDM is known for its electronic and rhythmic style beats and Elon doesn’t disappoint.
Even though Musk’s schedule is a little busier than most — I mean, he just launched global internet satellites into Space this week — I don’t think the track took too long for him to write. The 4 minute track has the lyrics “Don’t doubt your vibe, because it’s true, don’t doubt your vibe, because it’s you” repeated over and over.
According to Musk, he spoke the words and then altered them digitally in the studio. He also tweeted a photo of him celebrating the release in the actual studio and changed his Twitter name to ‘E ‘D’ M’. I guess EDM was in his name all along.

Elon Musk over the year
Whether a full album is coming, time will tell. But the lyrics echo the success and sometimes turbulent time Musk has been though. SpaceX continues to grow and Tesla stocks grew even further. As reported by TechCrunch, Tesla’s profits in the last quarter of 2019 was at an all time high, “generating nearly $7.4 billion in revenue, results that beat expectations”.
As with the highs, there were some lows with unexpected turns. During the ‘peado’ gate accusation, Musk successfully defended himself in court last month.
