WATCH: 17-Year-Old Awesomely Covers ‘Whip My Hair’


It was only a matter of time before the “Whip My Hair” covers started rolling in, but this acoustic and decidedly bluesy version by 17-year-old Katie Gavin may in fact be better than the original. Sacrilege, we know! But you should hear this girl sing.

While Willow Smith’s super-produced, bass-thumping original will forever be a cultural touchstone, kudos goes to Gavin for taking the song and turning it completely on its head. Gavin’s version has already been viewed over 87,000 times — a huge feat considering her previously uploaded videos and songs capped out at about 4,000 views.

Which version do you prefer?
