Russian Pop Song from 2004 Goes Viral on TikTok

Trend Múnch / YouTube

A Russian pop song by singer Katya Lel has gone viral on TikTok this month with videos of women dancing in fur coats and hats with earflaps.

The viral version is a sped-up remix of the original “Moi Marmeladnyi (My Marmalade),” which was released in 2004.

Its lyrics roughly translate to: “Again, it feels like my head is spinning. My marmalade, I'm wrong.”

The song has reached 3rd place on Spotify’s Viral 50 - Global chart.

Russian-speaking TikTokers started using the original track in March for videos in which they describe different life situations, saying that they were wrong with the phrase “My marmalade, I’m wrong,” the independent news website Holod reported.

This month, TikTok users from different countries adopted the sped-up version, creating videos where they dance and lip-sync to the song's rhythm.

Commenting on the trend, Lel said on her Instagram page on Tuesday that “life is unpredictable and full of surprises.”

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
