Canadian band Walk Off The Earth struck YouTube gold with their second viral hit “I Knew You Were Trouble,” featuring beatboxer KRNFX. The band rejigged Taylor Swift’s dubstep pop song sans instruments.
Walk Off The Earth exploded last year when they released their cover of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know” featuring five musicians playing one guitar. It received over 143 million hits but was beat out by Psy’s “Gangnam Style” as the most popular video on YouTube.
In their new a capella tune, it’s hard to believe they’re not using any electronic instruments to create the dubstep bass.They also play off a snippet of Solomon Linda’s song “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.”
The band said on Twitter: “Hey y’all. Please tweet at @taylorswift13 with our new video to see if she’s feelin’ it.” No word from her yet! What do you think of the cover?
