Charli XCX Covers Backstreet Boys
Backstreet’s back thanks to eccentric songstress Charli XCX who does a cover of the (former) boy band’s single “I Want It That Way.” The end result was so good that we highly recommend she put the cover on her next EP.
*BONUS:* In honor of our VIBE 20th Anniversary Cover featuring this year's hottest nerds (aka Daft Punk and Pharrell), we're giving you one more round of EDM videos this week. This time our list highlights the top three mashups of their summer hit single "Get Lucky," resulting in both hilarity and innovative genius:
After Daft Punk canceled their show appearance on ‘The Colbert Report’ last minute, Stephen responded with his own “Get Lucky” parody that has since gone viral across the web. Though with cameo appearances by Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Henry Kissinger, how can’t help to ‘lose yourself to dance’ and shake your derriere along with Colbert.
A fan decided to reinvent the iconic “Get Lucky,” but in South Park style. The result is sheer hilarity, raising our hopes that someday Matt Stone and Trey Parker will feature the robots in a future episode.
The DP duo has been praised making music ahead of their time, but from the fan-made mashup below it is quite obvious they would have fit right in with the past as well. Watch as the robots take on the ride on the Soooouuul Traaaiiin, - toot, toot!
