Make room, Victoria Justice. The Wombats are the latest to join Jessie J on her charitable mission to make the world dance, covering the Nothing But The Beat vocalist’s “Price Tag” for Billboard. In a new video segment, the Liverpool threesome put a Brit-rock spin on the generous anthem, then explain what drew them to the ditty, how they modified it to fit their own sound, and why the nixed B.oB.’s rap from their version. (“If something’s going to be bad, it’s got to be tastefully bad, or so bad that it’s funny.”) Watch it after the jump.
How do you think The Wombats’ revamp compares to Jessie J’s original?
