There are times when songs from other genres just work as a country song.
Johnny Cash’s cover of “Hurt” by Nine Inch Nails. The Dixie Chicks’ version of Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide.” Jack Ingram’s cover of “Lips of an Angel” by Hinder. (Ok, I’m just kidding about that last one. But you get the idea).
But what about Cardi B’s “WAP?” Could it possibly work as a country song?
Well apparently Travis Yee thinks so.
Yee has given us the answer to the question that literally nobody was asking: What would it sound like if Garth Brooks sang “WAP?”
His mashup, which combines the music of “The Dance” with the over-the-top sexual lyrics of “WAP,” shows us what would happen if Garth stopped singing about rodeos and the beaches of Cheyenne, and instead talked about “pull-out game” and touching that little dangly thing that swings in the back of your throat.
I’m horrified. Amused, but horrified.
Yee, who uses the handle @asiancountrysinger on Tik Tok, has racked up over 8 million views on his “When the voice doesn’t match the body” video of him singing Garth Brook’s “Friends in Low Places.”
He even caught the attention of g himself, who was shocked at Yee’s appearance after hearing his voice, commenting that Yee “sings his ass off.”
No word yet on what Garth thinks about Yee’s reimagined version of “WAP,” but since we’re still waiting on that new album (years after it was announced), maybe it’s not too late to add another song?
