This 4-Year-Old Singing "Coco" Is All You Need To Hear Today

This 4-Year-Old Singing "Coco" Is All You Need To Hear Today

Mix it in the glass, mama! I’m drinkin’ chocolate fast, mama!

By now you've no doubt heard "CoCo" by O.T. Genasis a few hundred times, the catchy-as-hell, dumb-as-hell ode to ...

Cocaine. Blow. Snow. White. Yayo. Booger Sugar. The Devil's Dandruff. Columbian Marching Powder. Fishscale.

O.T.'s impassioned delivery and uncanny knack for finding words that rhyme with "coco" have made the song an inescapable hit on radio and Vine, which may be part of the reason it makes our Signature Songs By State list consistently. Of course, the utter absurdity of the song's middle break is an earworm that digs pretty deep.

Sing it with us...

Well, now "CoCo" gets the remake it deserves, from a 4-year-old kid singing about chocolate milk. It's called "I'm In Love With The CoaCoa." It's adorable. You have to listen to it NOW.

Abigail Breslin's Opinion On 25 Completely Random Things

Abigail Breslin's Opinion On 25 Completely Random Things

Jon Premosch / BuzzFeed

You know her from some of your favorite films — My Sister's Keeper, August: Osage County, and her Oscar-nominated turn in Little Miss Sunshine — but apart from being a crazy talented actress, Abigail Breslin is also a budding musician. Recently debuting a music video for her very first single, "You Suck," she stopped by BuzzFeed New York to chat all about her music and answer a few *very important* questions (like what her AIM screen name was and what she considers her go-to dance move).

1. Favorite music video of 2014?

Can I just say Nicki Minaj "Anaconda"? I mean obviously. It's too good.

2. Go-to karaoke song?

"All I Want For Christmas Is You" by Mariah Carey. I did it in like October. No hate.

3. Dream duet?

Bon Iver. Justin Vernon is literally life. His voice sounds like God's tears.

4. What was your first AIM screen name?

It was SumAndSeth4Eva, because of The OC, and I was a big Summer and Seth lover.

5. Favorite boy band?

I'm gonna go with NSYNC. Actually, wait. NLT! Does anybody remember NLT? The guy from Glee, Kevin McHale, was in it. I went to a Glee concert and I was like "I love NLT!" and he was like, "Oh, OK. Really? Wow."

Jon Premosch / BuzzFeed

6. Last album you bought?

I bought a Christmas music CD at Starbucks with old Christmas classics.

7. Craziest fan story?

A lot of people try to pick me up, and I think it's because they think I'm still 9 for some reason. But, I was in a grocery store one day and this little girl came up to me and just said to me, "You're Elsa." And I was just like, "Um, no. No I'm not actually." And she was like, "No you are though. Like you are so." Little kids just automatically think blonde hair means Elsa.

8. What scares you?

Bugs. There was a bug on my wall a couple of weeks ago and I started screaming and said to my dad, "There's this giant bug with tentacles roaming around my room ready to attack me at any moment, I'm terrified." And we walked in and it was really tiny and it didn't have tentacles, it was just, like, a centipede. And I was like, "No, it was trying to kill me!"

9. Favorite website?

BuzzFeed.

10. What’s your favorite emoji?

Probably either the cat heart eyes or the moon. I just text that to somebody if they write something weird, or if my manager sends me something and I don't know, or if your ex tried to text you for no reason. Just the perfect "no reason for it" emoji.

Jon Premosch / BuzzFeed

11. Favorite pizza topping?

Just cheese.

12. Favorite quote?

My cousin one time told me when she was like 8 that her teacher told her, "You get what you get, and you don't get upset." #life

13. Who’s your favorite Disney Princess?

Is Elsa considered a Disney Princess? Then Elsa. Because everybody tells me I look like Elsa, and I've had little kids come up to me and ask me if I'm Elsa when I wear my hair in a braid.

14. Most-used hashtag?

I just write really long hashtags, but probably #hatersaremymotivatorz.

15. When it comes to Twitter trolls, do you ignore them or reply?

Ignoring is the right thing to do — to rise above, because it's not worth it. But I actually did reply once, and I gotta say, the girl really took it like a champ. She just said something to me about something I'd written and that I'd spelled it incorrectly. And I looked back and I actually didn't, and I just screenshot the actual spelling of the word, just like kept zooming in on it, and she just wrote back "#touche."

Jon Premosch / BuzzFeed

16. A lifetime supply of chocolate or pizza?

Chocolate!

17. If you could work with anyone from the past who would it be?

I'd like to work with Darren Aronofsky.

18. Who’s your doppelgänger?

Elsa!

19. What’s the most memorable concert you've ever been to?

Probably a High School Musical concert back in the day.

20. Last book you read?

I reread the Twilight books last year. Team Edward.

Jon Premosch / BuzzFeed

21. Favorite reality show?

I'm mostly really into TLC shows, like Say Yes to the Dress and Four Weddings. I've had to go to a bunch of weddings this year for some reason, like, everybody is getting married. So I'll usually go with my mom and we'll do "four weddings" at the table — we'll just be like, "Food: Let's give this a 6", and we try to get people to join in and they're usually like, "Ehh, no."

22. Biggest pet peeve?

Probably when people text you and then you reply and they just don't answer. It's like, you texted me! Why is this happening?

23. What's your stance on "k." in a text message?

It's like you're aggressively and actively trying to tell somebody that you're angry. Like "k." is the equivalent of being like, "I hope you die."

24. Can you do any good impressions?

I can do a good soccer mom.

25. Favorite dance move?

I try to do this:

At New York's Beacon Theatre, Mariah Carey Reigns As The Undisputed Queen Of Christmas

Ringing in the season on a high note.

Mariah Carey has had a tumultuous year: She's dealt with rumors of divorce from Nick Cannon, her husband of five years; her most recent studio album failed to perform like the superstar had hoped; and after a string of so-so live performances, many feared that the singer had lost her voice.

On Tuesday evening, Carey's fans and admirers, both young and old, made their way to the Beacon Theater in New York City for her holiday show, "All I Want for Christmas Is You: A Night of Festivity and Joy," the second show of a six-night run that the singer will be performing at the venue. Though the pressure was on, Carey managed to deliver superb vocals and spread Yuletide joy all while reminding fans of her one true love: her music.

The show began around 8:15 p.m. The lights dimmed, and the crowd began to wail in anticipation. Moments later, the red curtain that had been shielding the audience from Carey's radiance lifted, and the superstar was revealed wearing a sleek and sparkling white gown, a massive choir in her wake.

The first song of the night, the holiday standard "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," appeared on her best-selling 1994 Christmas album Merry Christmas. Carey belted through the song effortlessly, and she continued this momentum throughout the night. From there, Carey made her way through "Charlie Brown Christmas," a song from her second holiday album, Merry Christmas II You, released in 2010. She wowed the audience again, exhibiting impeccable breath control while dancing along with her backup dancers. During the hour-and-a-half show, enough merriment filled the building to make even the Grinch smile.

Recently, Carey's live performances have been criticized for falling short of the stratospheric standards the singer set in her heyday. But, as much as it may pain some fans to admit, the '90s are gone. The voice is an organic instrument, and there were moments during Tuesday night's festive concert when Carey adapted her classic songs for the voice she has now, which, though still magnificent in tone and range, had lost some of its luster. This was most noticeable when Carey sang "Joy to the World." While the performance was beautifully sung, Carey didn't tear into it in the way she may have 20 years ago.

When Carey wasn't singing, she was either joking with fans, giggling with backup dancers, or displaying a few of the "diva" quips for which she has become known. She walked the length of the stage several times during the night embracing her fans' outstretched arms and saying how much she appreciated everyone for coming out to the show.

Although Christmas was definitely the theme of the night, Carey snuck in a few non-holiday surprises. She performed two of her classic '90s hits: The crowd erupted when she sang a rousing rendition of "Emotions," lifted from 1991 album of the same name, and she delivered an emotional performance of her song "Hero," which appeared on Music Box, released in 1993.

The last song of the night was "All I Want for Christmas Is You." The modern classic jingle started, and the audience, still reeling from the excitement of singing "Hero," looked to Carey gleefully — it was the moment everyone had been waiting for. The much faulted performance at Rockefeller Center was immediately forgotten. The song went off without a hitch and the audience happily sang along to every word.

On Tuesday night, Carey reminded fans of one critical thing: her talent. Big hair comes and goes, flashy gowns eventually go out of style, but as long as Carey's voice remains, she'll always have a saving grace. So will the rest of us.

Marina and the Diamonds, who BuzzFeed Music readers are already well acquainted with, released "Happy" on Friday, and saw the song shoot up to No. 6 on iTunes and pull over half a million YouTube views almost immediately.

It's not hard to see hear why. It very well could be the most understated and subtle song about being "Happy" ever recorded — a real tearjerker. (Don't worry — it's a good cry.)

We are happy (!) to premiere the video for Marina and the Diamonds spectacular "Happy" on BuzzFeed Music today.

"Happy" is the first track on Marina's upcoming album Froot, which will be released on April 6, 2015.

"Happy" is the first track on Marina's upcoming album Froot, which will be released on April 6, 2015.

It starts with the Welsh-born singer Marina Diamandis crooning over languid piano chords. Quickly a mood is established that seems antithetical to the song's title.

But then more instruments join and the drum brushes kick in, giving the song some pace.

And soon you feel uplifted.

Yeah. A bit like that.

You'll probably hear this song covered a lot next year.
