Hi B Boys and B Girls! :) Thanks for checking out MattyB's cover of Fun & Janelle Monae's smash hit single, "We Are Young!" He's been hearing this song a LOT on the radio every morning on his way to school and he really likes it so he had to do it MattyB style! He thought this song was rad cool because the chorus talks about being young like a kid and shining bright! He thinks the most important rule when you're a kid is to just have fun and enjoy the world around you. Dream BIG and go for it! That's what it means to be young so keep your swag tight and STAY young! :)

Also, thank you so much for all of your continued support! MattyB and his BBoys and BGirls have come a long way together and he wants you to know that he's grateful for every single time you've watched a video of his and decided to comment, like, favorite and shared it with your friends on Facebook and Twitter. The support you keep on giving means the world to him! :)

Keep following your dreams!

Give me a second I
I need to get my hat on right
Cause I might be in this verse
But not unless my swagger's tight
Dreams are made to follow
If you reach beyond the stars
But you can't let other people's opinions
Determine who you are and

If I know one thing
I be working hard (knock)
Doing my thing
Catch me rappin' like non stop
In it for the team
Give me the and it'll be
All eyes lookin' at me
What you, what you really want
Tell me what you really need
And everybody doubts qualities they can't see
Listen the mission ain't glistening
You're missing me more
Man they ain't spit it like Matty before

So if by the time the verse closes
And you feel like falling down
I'll carry you home..

Tonight we are young
So let's set the world on fire
We can burn brighter
Than the sun (x2)

I represent every kid, every nation
I represent my young generation
I represent music innovation
You're favorite song on that FM station
It's like the beat brings the best in me
And no man can stop my destiny
So if you're young and you're fresh
And you're wild and free
Then put your hands in the air
Up where I can see and sing

Tonight we are young
So let's set the world on fire
We can burn brighter
Than the sun (x2)

So if by the time the song closes
And you feel like falling down
I'll carry you home tonight
