Song: Cher Lloyd’s “Want U Back”
Why we’re obsessed: Cher Lloyd’s addictive “Want U Back” hit takes on a whole new meaning with MattyB’s impressive spin on it. Instead of yearning for an ex, he’s heartbroken over a confiscated iPhone. Really? Is he even old enough to have one?
While this cover’s tempo and beat is pretty similar to the original, MattyB’s rapping skills stand out. He raps: “Head spinning like a helicopter cause I just got in trouble with the monster” (a.k.a mom), or “Girl you can have everything you want as long as you don’t take away my iPhone.”
MattyB is a regular on YouTube and so far, this video has reached over 190,000 views in only three days.
Background: MattyB has been covering a variety of tracks, from JBiebs to David Guetta, since he created his YouTube channel in 2010. He has over 80 videos along with some originals. Trust me, he’s really good at what he does. At such a young age, I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more from him really soon!
