There's still time! He could be Elon Musk: CEO of Tesla and SpaceX and record producer extraordinaire.

The announcement came just days after the SEC said they were suing Musk for misleading investors - an allegation stemming from a controversial tweet he sent out in August declaring he was taking Tesla private at $420 a share. Is this some kind of early April Fools' Day prank or simply Musk's odd attempt to bring Harambe memes back three years later?

The two-minute track is a bouncy tribute to Harambe the gorilla.

The autotuned ode to Harambe, the gorilla who was killed in the Cincinnati Zoo after dragging a three-year-old boy who climbed into his enclosure, has over half a million listens. It has been listened to over 300,000 times since it was uploaded on Sunday.

Review of the track on Twitter have been mixed.
