The end of the year is near and we all know what that means, the You Oughta Know Live In Concert is just around the corner. Along with ten other amazing acts, Aloe Blacc is confirmed to perform, but prepping for this concert is not all he’s up to over the next month.

We all want to be just like the cool kids, but nothing is cooler than the acoustic version of Echosmith‘s hit song “Cool Kids”.

However, Echosmith outdid themselves with this one and produced something arguably even better than the version you know and love.
Echosmith‘s song “Cool Kids” has been blowing up! It has been climbing to the top of the international charts, as well as our Top 20 Countdown list and Billboard‘s Hot 100 on this side of the globe.

Let’s get it out of the way right now: it’s pronounced Toe-v Low. The last two days have been HUGE for electropop singer Tove Lo.

In association with VH1′s You Oughta Know series, we livestreamed her concert across multiple platforms, but there was no comparison to seeing her live.
