Omi – “Cheerleader (Sincerely Collins Reinterpretation)”

blame it on Patrick Glynn July 28, 2015

I would like to sincerely thank Sincerely Collins. He’s made the song I loathe the most listenable. He’s made it so that whenever I hear Omi’s “Cheerleader,” which, for some ridiculous reason, is a No. 1 song in the United States of America, I can think someone made good of it. I shouldn’t be too surprised, because this is the same country that allowed the Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling” to be No. 1 for 14 fucking weeks.

Anyway, Sincerley Collins remixed the remix the Jamaican’s “Cheerleader,” which was done by Felix Jaehn. And he made it, you know, good. I can listen to it for more than a minute and not question the sanctity of music making. Slowing down the song and turning it into an intimate, R ‘n’ B cut, Collins’ remix of “Cheerleader” stays true to the song’s first verse before adding a quicker, lyrically deeper verse than anything Omi will ever be capable of.

This was somewhat of a venting session, because I never had the opportunity to write about Omi’s “Cheerleader” and how bad it is, but I’m glad I can write about how someone took what he ruined and turned it into something nice.
