Listen to the Korn + Cher Lloyd Mashup ‘Want U Freak’
Master mashup artist DJ Cummerbund, has delivered his latest head-scratching mix: this time, he's combined Korn and UK pop sensation Cher Lloyd. And like so many of his other creations, this one comes off brilliantly.
Cummerbund combines the 1998 nu metal anthem "Freak on a Leash" with Lloyd's 2012 U.S. breakthrough hit "Want U Back" in the video which can be viewed above. Blending live footage from Korn's concerts along with the video for Lloyd's song, he also manages to slip in ubiquitous nods to professional wrestling, with the standard "Macho Man" Randy Savage dropping by as well as a special appearance by the late manager of the Undertaker, Paul Bearer.
Previously, DJ Cummerbund brought us a union of Disturbed and Stevie Wonder on "Wish of Confusion," Marilyn Manson and Shania Twain for "Man I Feel Beautiful," and before that Foo Fighters combined with Rick James for "Freaktender." We can't wait to see what he does next.
As for Korn, they're on a bit of a break right now as frontman Jonathan Davis is tending to a promotional run for the May 25 release date of his solo album Black Labyrinth and string of tour dates to support it, while band guitarist Brian “Head” Welch is readying the release of his documentary Loud Krazy Love. The film will premiere at the Dallas International Film Festival on May 5 with another screening on May 6 and will also be shown at the Nashville Film Festival on May 11 and May 17.
