CompositionEdit

The EP features six songs about life in the age of COVID-19. The first track is "Mas(k)ot", a spoof on "Bootylicious" by Destiny's Child that calls out all the events that have been cancelled because of the virus. It features a cheerleading theme and features Jerry Harris from the Netflix series Cheer.[3] "Tiktok" is about the app of the same name. "Meow" is about the television program Tiger King, notable for its popularity during the pandemic. "Mask, Gloves, Soap, Scrubs", is a parody of Hall's song "Nails, Hair, Hips, Heels" from Haus Party, Pt. 1

Following the arrest of Jerry Harris in September 2020 for allegedly soliciting sex from minors, the track Mas(k)ot was removed from all streaming platforms and download stores.[citation needed]
