Social media users are freaking out after hearing a song titled 'Pandemic', which contains references to coronavirus in 2020 despite being written back in 2013. Check it out:

That's right, it's time to don your tinfoil hat and take a look at 'Pandemic' by Dr Creep, which was posted on YouTube back in June 2013, but is now going viral on TikTok after people spotted the creepy coincidence.

Just seconds into the song, there's a sample of a woman saying: "By the time they tried to evacuate the cities it was already too late - the infection was everywhere."

Later in the song, Dr Creep raps: "Begin life in a lab in the first war of vaccines / Million die in the first week in the pandemic dreams."

He then adds: "2020 combined with coronavirus, bodies stacking."

Weird, eh?

However, you can doff that tinfoil hat, because the rapper himself has spoken and has clarified how the song came about.

Dr Creep

In a lengthy post on Facebook in March last year, Dr Creep wrote that there was 'already six or so coronaviruses in 2012/2013' when the song was written and that he had simply chosen the year 2020 because '2020 and 2030 was just significant years to me'.

He added: "To me, the lyrics are just more of a coincidence than a prediction as I don't feel I was 'trying' to predict anything, I just rapped about what I was watching.

"But call it a prediction, dumb luck, coincidence, remote viewing, predictive programming (lmao) or whatever you want.

"People just never heard of a coronavirus which is part of a family of viruses, hence why they dubbed the new one Covid-19 or SARS-CoV-II.

"SARS and MERS were both coronaviruses as well."

The post continued: "So once again, NO, I'm not a prophet. Not Nostradamus. No, I don't make predictions and no, I'm not a writer for The Simpsons.

"BUT, I have been studying docs and listening to 'insiders' and 'whistle blowers' in lectures and interviews for 10+ years and some things just add up and lyrics come out of it.

"NOT a prediction, simple as that.

"Yeah I know, mentioning a coronavirus and 2020 in a song titled 'Pandemic' from 2013 is strange to most people, but not so much to me as this is what I do, I watch 'crazy s***' and make esoteric underground hip hop."

But then he would say that, wouldn't he?

The truth is out there, guys.
