Today, Lyn Lapid returns with a cover of Sarah McLachlan’s critically acclaimed and widely adored “When She Loved Me”. Lyn also unveils a live performance video of her take on the song on her YouTube.
Lyn originally released a cover of “When She Loved Me” on her TikTok earlier this year, which has over 13 million views and 2 million likes to date and resulted in over 420 thousand video creates using the sound from her video. Sarah McLachlan’s original song is famously featured in the Toy Story 2 soundtrack and won a GRAMMY Award for “Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media.” It was also nominated for “Best Original Song” at Golden Globes and Academy Awards.
Of her cover, Lyn says, “I covered this song on TikTok about a year ago, and it blew up like crazy. I think over 400k videos were posted with my cover, and a ton of my followers were asking for me to put it on streaming platforms, so I did! It’s such a beautiful song and so pretty with the ukulele, and after a year it’s still just as pretty.”
Lyn recently released a cover of Billie Eilish’s “Your Power,” which resulted in a co-sign from the artist herself, who commented on the video: “this is so beautiful.” Jungkook from BTS also recently added Lyn’s debut single “Producer Man” to his “Favorite Tracks” playlist on Spotify.
“When She Loved Me” sets the stage for more new music to come from the 18-year-old singer and songwriter this summer. The cover follows her latest single “Itsy Bitsy” released earlier this year. The song, a spin on the classic children’s nursery rhyme “Itsy Bitsy Spider,” illustrates Lyn’s rapid progression as a songwriter and artist.
