After seamlessly mashing Frozen‘s “Let It Go” with Passenger‘s “Let Her Go,” YouTube sensation Sam Tsui has decided to give The Chainsmoker‘s Instagram anthem, “#Selfie,” an extreme makeover.

In the cover, the 24-year-old spins the track into an arresting ballad by actually singing the exaggerated valley girl monologue. When the track reaches the progressive drop, the cover artist replaces the heavy synths with striking piano arrangements and breathy falsettos.

The now-viral video has logged more than 230,000 views in just over a week — which is more than “10 likes in the last 5 minutes.”
