Jade Rich, who fronts Fox Teeth, a New Jersey-based shoegaze band, created the mashup. The brief recording features Paramore’s “All I Wanted” chorus transitioning seamlessly to Soulja Boy’s “Crank That (Soulja Boy).”

The (surprisingly perfect) creation comes over a decade after the release of its source tracks. The “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” single dropped in 2007 and “All I Wanted” made its debut in 2009 under Paramore’s Brand New Eyes. Combined, the tracks have accrued over 58 million streams on Spotify alone.

The mixture of 2000s rap and pop-punk has been a recent trend in social media with the circulation of The Magic iPod. The website allows users to try out their own combinations within this strangely specific niche. Options include “Crank That,” as well as Yellowcard’s “Ocean Avenue,” My Chemical Romance’s “Helena,” and more.
Other recent mashups have paired 2000s favorites with more mainstream tracks. One notable example mixes Harry Styles’ “Adore You” with Fall Out Boy’s “Dance, Dance.” Another seamlessly blends Taylor Swift’s “Love Story” with twenty one pilots’ “Jumpsuit.”
