LMFAO’s ‘Sexy and I Know It’ Gets a Bluesy Makeover in New Video
An 18-year old with glasses named Noah from South Carolina is the latest to have a viral video set to LMFAO‘s ‘Sexy and I Know It,’ but he may also be the best one yet. The Dave Matthews Band fan has a number of pop covers on his YouTube account, but this one is by far the most creative and least expected. It’s completely different from anything Redfoo and Sky Blu have come up with yet.
“This time it’s something a little different from what I usually do,” Noah admitted. “I’ve secretly wanted to cover this song for a really long time, but never knew how I was going to arrange it. I’ve finally figured out how I’m going to arrange it, and it’s a lot different from the original version of it,” he chuckled. “So here’s ‘I’m Sexy and I Know It’ by LMFAO … this is happening. I’m doing it.”
Noah, who describes his sound as “Americana acoustic,” says on his Facebook page, “I’m not into a lot of effects and tricks. Just good melodies and lyrics with something to say.” While LMFAO’s tracks aren’t much deeper than the puddles after a passing shower, they’re still a good time, and combined with Noah’s powerful pipes, they manage to pack a punch.
He really wasn’t joking about how different the song is from the original track. Noah transforms the goofy hip-pop anthem into a bluesy acoustic number that’s part barn burner, part bedroom jam. This guy can sing his butt off! Though comparing his version to the original is like comparing apples and oranges, we have to say it may be just as good — in a completely different way.
