It’s now the weekend, which makes it the perfect time for a revamp of The Weeknd’s slinky jam “What You Need” — by Cody Simpson, of all people! The New.Music.Live performer has directed how own “Reimagined” version of the song’s sexy video about an unfaithful girl, featuring the chorus: “He’s what you want, I’m what you need.” The “Not Just You” singer keeps the stylish black-and-white vibe of The Weeknd’s original, while losing some of the racier content and switching the title to “What You Want,” resulting in the most mature effort we’ve seen yet from Cody. Take a look below.
