Much like its predecessors Music Videos That Don't Suck and Awesome 90's Songs You May Have Forgotten, Weave Gotcha Covered is a (fairly) new music feature we've been putting out from time to time to shine some light on our favorite musical covers. This installment features Jon Bellion covering Drake and Lil Wayne's 2011 mega-hit "The Motto". You know, the song that enlightened millions of teens to the fact that (gasps!) you only live once? Although the 2 Man Weave officially declared YOLO dead back in March, Bellion's rendition has provided this song with the life support it so desperately needed. Our friends over at TWSS posted this version yesterday and I've probably listened to it close to ten times since. I like how you're able to make out each word of the song over those soft piano keys, however I'm going to have to put Jon's man card on double secret probation for laughing like a little girl at the 2:11 mark rather than singing Wayne's ultra graphic line about drowning in vaginal fluids and swimming to butt holes for safety.
P.S. "Wrsit blang, got a condo up in Biscayne, still getting brain from a thang, ain't shit changed" still kills me every time I hear it. No clue why, I just genuinely enjoy that line.
