Seventeen-year old pop-punk upstart Plug in Stereo (aka Trevor Dahl) has a voice so sweet, it may make your teeth hurt. He showcases this sweetness on a new cover of Lil Wayne‘s most recent hit “How to Love.” While we recently heard an excellent Lil Wayne cover from Karmin, Dahl, who has toured with fellow pop-punk superstars Never Shout Never and Dashboard Confessional, makes you forget what the original Weezy track even sounded like.
On his new Mixtape Vol. 2, Dahl tackles other recent favorites by Taylor Swift (“Mean”) and Zac Brown Band (“Knee Deep”) as well as a ’90s classic (“Fast Car” by Tracy Chapman). He approaches each song with just a delicate, bubblegum voice and a guitar, infusing a Jason Mraz-esque sunny perspective to each track. The cover of “Mean” especially showcases the young singer’s talent for creating easy, singalong songs. Download the Lil Wayne cover below, then snag the rest over at Purevolume.
