The Wanted totally nailed their cover of Ne-Yo’s “Let Me Love You (Until You Learn To Love Yourself).”
In case you felt a lil’ shortchanged on your Christmas and Hanukkah gifts this year (srlsy mom, pajamas AGAIN??), then please accept this cover video of The Wanted slaying their rendition of Ne-Yo’s “Let Me Love You (Until You Learn To Love Yourself)” as a gift from us to you. (If we coulda put a bow on it, we would have!)
Watch The Wanted cover Ne-Yo’s “Let Me Love You (Until You Learn To Love Yourself)” after the jump.
Accompanied only by a piano and a lone dude banging on a box and shaking one of those shaker things (!!), the lads of The Wanted took turns with lines from the verse (p.s. SICK falsetto, Max!), then all came together in a lush, five-part harmony on the chorus. And don’t think we didn’t notice that brief a cappella breakdown, guys. ’Cause we did. And it ruled. Next stop should be hitting up the studio with Ne-Yo IRL, mmkay? Maybe “Chasing The Sun” meets a little old-school “Miss Independent“? Sounds like a massive hit to us.
