While the original track builds as a club banger with a positive message, the Wanted’s version keeps the momentum of the intro to produce an uplifting piano ballad. Nathan Sykes sings the opening bars, with Jay McGuiness following, then Max George and Tom Parker taking over for the first chorus.
Their rendition picks up tempo after the first chorus, but the acoustic setting and unedited harmonies makes the song their own, and it really showcases how well each of their distinct voices work with one another. Another awesome aspect of the video? McGuiness’ too-cute, interpretative dance moves and goofy faces.
