Tyler, The Creator’s rendition of “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch.”
Early last month it was discovered that Tyler The Creator would be contributing to The Grinch soundtrack when we heard his rendition of the classic song, “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch” previewed in the film’s latest trailer. Well today the song has officially been released which of course is a remake from 1996 cult classic, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
Although, Tyler uses the a lot of same lyrics from the cult classic, while giving the track a little twist & adding a few relatable bars on topic. His deep voice & angry tone, makes for a perfect match for the Grinch’s dark side and character. What can we say than its just a taste of what’s to come as Tyler is handling the entire soundtrack for the film, with many more songs to come.
Take a listen to Tyler’s rendition and let us know what you think. The Grinch hits theaters November 9th, along with the soundtrack.
You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch
You really are a heel
You’re as cuddly as a cactus, you’re as charming as an eel, Mr. Grinch
You’re a bad banana with a greasy black peel!
