Cody Simpson: “Beyoncé Inspired My Single Surfboard” (@CodySimpson)

Cody+Simpson+Nickelodeon+27th+Annual+Kids+GEIHTLP3J95lThe real motive behind Cody Simpson‘s new summer anthem “Surfboard” has officially been revealed!

In a recent interview with Fuse News, young Australian musician Cody Simpson talks about his latest single “Surfboard” and how it was partially inspired by Beyoncé’s “Drunk in Love.”

“I’ve been surfing my whole life. It’s just been part of my music ever since I can remember. Beyoncé came out with ‘Drunk in Love’ and really made that term a part of pop cultureShe definitely kind of cemented the sexual innuendo into the term.”

His girlfriend Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Gigi Hadid stars alongside Simpson in the steamy vid. “To have her in it made it so natural.”

Even with all the craziness of his success, Simpson is humble, openly discussing his recent elimination from Dancing With the Stars.

I have mixed feelings about it. It’s always kind of disappointing when you lose the opportunity to still be on a show like that. I never would have had the ability to tango or waltz on TV. It’s amazing—if I come out of this a better entertainer, learn more about dancing itself, it’s great.”
