A tent is a shelter consisting of sheets of fabric or other material draped over, attached to a frame of poles or attached to a supporting rope. While smaller tents may be free-standing or attached to the ground, large tents are usually anchored using guy ropes tied to stakes or tent pegs. First used as portable homes by nomadic peoples, tents are now more often used for recreational camping and temporary shelters.
Tents range in size from “bivouac” structures, just big enough for one person to sleep in, up to huge circus tents capable of seating thousands of people. The bulk of this article is concerned with tents used for recreational camping which have sleeping space for one to ten people. Larger tents are discussed in a separate section below.
Tents for recreational camping fall into two categories. Tents intended to be carried by backpackers are the smallest and lightest type. Small tents may be sufficiently light that they can be carried for long distances on a touring bicycle, a boat, or when backpacking.
The second type are larger, heavier tents which are usually carried in a car or other vehicle. Depending on tent size and the experience of the person or people involved, such tents can usually be assembled (pitched) in between 5 and 25 minutes; disassembly (striking) takes a similar length of time. Some very specialised tents have spring-loaded poles and can be ‘pitched’ in seconds, but take somewhat longer to strike.
The official audio for the single was uploaded to VEVO August 21, 2015. Rolling Stone also talked about it on their magazine too. The music video features cameo appearances from Chance the Rapper and Snoop Dogg. It shows R. Kelly singing along with his “friends” wearing family reunion shirts. It also shows them riding self-balancing scooters. Once the song ends in the music video the sound comes on and you can hear people actually singing his Backyard Party song.
Then after, the song changes to another one of his songs on his album The Buffet called Marching Band. Backyard Party is a groovy funk, song that has an upbeat tempo to it. This song has the same type of feel as his previous song Step in the Name of Love, but it sounds more like the remix than the original.
