You Won't Believe How This Youtuber Sings Jason Derulo's Hit 'Ta
Youtuber 'Ten Second Songs' covers popular songs in a way that's maybe a little different than what you're used to. He takes a song as sings it in the style of different artists - sometimes artists whose styles varies greatly from that of the original singer.

Needless to say, he nails it on pretty much every rendition.

After looking back through my late-February and March reviews, I’ve compiled a playlist of one favorite from each album.
