The true sign of having a massive hit in 2017 is the abundance of covers it inspires. We should know because we receive countless cover submissions every single week from every corner of the music industry. Country covers of rock songs, rock covers of country songs, and more punk goes pop knockoffs than we could ever count. The one thing there is a shortage of is quality material, but recently, we came across a rendition “XO TOUR Llif3” from Alex Goot and Jayce (Secret Secret Dino Club) that we could not resist.
As seen above, Goot sits behind a piano and gives Jayce the floor for this acoustic-drive cover of Lil Uzi Vert‘s smash hit. The bass-heavy “XO TOUR Llif3” turns a bit more melancholy when slowed for this rendition, but that only serves to help emphasize the pain found in the lyrics.
This video is far from a one-off. Those who enjoy what Goot and Jayce have put together can watch Goot cover a number of popular songs with other artists on his official YouTube channel.
As for Lil Uzi, the success of “XO TOUR Llif3” has been strong enough to keep the up and comer in headlines while he finishes his first proper album. You can view the official video for the song below:
