Here’s what Taylor Swift and Avril Lavigne think of YUNGBLUD’s cover
Now, both Swift and Lavigne have reacted to YUNGBLUD's rendition of their hit singles.
Accompanied with a string quartet, YUNGBLUD's "Cardigan" and "I'm With You" mashup was part of BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge. The performance is a bit softer than his previous appearances on BBC Radio 1 and truly shows his vulnerable side.
He starts off the performance with "Cardigan," but soon effortlessly weaves in Lavigne's "I'm With You," creating a 2020 meets 2002 mashup we didn't know we needed until now.
Since the performance, both Swift and Lavigne have shared their thoughts on the cover. Lavigne acknowledged the mashup on Instagram, calling it "epic. love it" and sending YUNGBLUD an appropriate fire emoji.
Swift had a few more things to say. On Tuesday, she sent YUNGBLUD a long tweet praising the clever mashup cover.
The "Cardigan" and "I'm With You" mashup isn't the first we've heard from YUNGBLUD. As part of a 2018 Alternative Press exclusive, he blended songs by Nirvana, Juice WRLD and Ariana Grande together at soundcheck.
"Cardigan" is off of Swift's eighth studio album folklore which she surprised dropped back in July. Since it's release, Swift has broken various streaming and chart records.
Just this week, folklore returned to the No.1 spot on the Billboard 200. This feat means that Swift has surpassed Whitney Houston for the most weeks at No.1. Swift's total weeks at No.1 now stands at 47 while Houston achieved 46 during her career.
Lavigne's "I'm With You" is off of her 2002 album Let Go. Alongside "Complicated" and "Sk8er Boi," "I'm With You" remains one of her most popular songs to date. In fact, it is currently one of her top songs on Spotify with over 113 million streams.
YUNGBLUD's highly-anticipated sophomore album Weird! arrives Nov. 13. Along with his explosive single "Strawberry Lipstick," the LP includes his vulnerable new song "god save me, but don't drown me out." YUNGBLUD recently released a video for the latter song which some think has a nod to My Chemical Romance in it.
